“Jazz Bass Sets and Singles for 4 and 5 String Basses”

The CBJS-1 pickup is the Jazz Bass® ( J Bass® ) replacement pickup set . The set is highly respected by musicians and luthiers alike for its deep tone, strong lows, low mids tone. They feature a low noise single coil design.

The "Classic Bass" series bass pickups are passive designs featuring an extended and more resonant frequency range. They have far more "air" and definition at the top without sacrificing lows and low mids. They are cast in epoxy to remove unwanted feedback and microphonics.

Please check the physical size of the pickups you want to replace to make sure the replacements fit properly.

Great sounding Jazz bass tone!
By Rob
I wasn't happy with the pickups in my G&L MJ4 bass. They were a bit thin and I really hated the protruding magnets as they interfered with my right hand when I was playing as my fingers keep catching them which drove me nuts. lol So I decided to put some different pickups into a bass that is without a doubt a joy to play. Well I am more than happy with the results. These Bartolini’s are a great fit for my MJ4. Now I have great tone and great playability as they don’t bother my right hand.

Love em'

Great pickups
By Chris
Bartolini makes some of the best pickups around. Period. These Bart single coils are the bomb. The installed into an older Czech made MTD 5 string along with a Bart NTBT preamp @ 18v. It's a beautiful thing!
