The Jazz pickups that you've been waiting for!
By Michael Christenson from on 2/11/2017
From the very first note my eyes were opened wide in pleasant surprise at the quality and meat of the tone from these pickups. I've coupled these Bartolini pickups with the DarkGlass ToneCapsule in my 2009 Spector Euro 5JJ bass and the combination makes for a mighty and endless tonal palette. I had EMG active jazz pickups in this bass prior and I felt that I needed more oomph, punch, especially in the mids and get rid of the sizzling highs. These new Bartolini b-Axis V passive pickups deliver all of that! My ear drums feel ear busting pressure while playing low notes on the B string but yet smooth tones. The growl and Bark when playing in the midrange just doesn't let up and you just want to keep playing and playing. Now when I play higher notes on the D and G strings I don't cringe from the sizzling highs but delighted with the solid more tamed high note tones with clarity. It doesn't matter which notes that you're playing there's no muddiness but very definedness with great articulation. Try a set! You'll be very surprised and very pleased that you did!
