NJ5 Pickup Set
Single Coil 5 String Jazz Style Bass Pickup
Five string single coil pickups in the same style as the nj4.
Featuring Alnico III magnets and the same winding pattern as the four.
Alnico III magnets differ from Alnico V in that they are warmer with a softer character.Think of them like a 60′s J style sound taken even further down the warm and fat path.
Alnico V by contrast is brighter, cleaner and punchier, and will have a more wiry, stringy character.
As another example, we’d recommend Alnico III for fretless or a fat 60′s jaco type thing and Alnico V is great for a modern slap style or a great R & B sound.
