The Power Blade

This pickup is the latest addition to our blade arsenal. With its thick steel blade, optimized wind, and ceramic magnets providing an authoritative low-end punch, the Power Blade will distribute a forcefield of fat slap fury that is tamed and guided by a super smooth top end. With half of its tonal DNA being derived from the classic P design, its character is inherently reminiscent of that hard-hitting P bass vigor we all love, only with a bit more girth in its low-end and translucent flow in its highs which works to facilitate the impressive character that is all its own. This P-style Big Blade split in half will satisfy any player looking for the power of a Big Blade without compromising the throaty fury of classic P tone.

Powerful and punchy
By Ric W from on 12/9/2017
This pickup is more of what I expected than I expected! It's definitely punchy and bright, but I go for an old school sound than a more modern tone with lots of treble. It'll certainly do modern, especially with a pick, but I found I like it a lot more with flatwounds and a touch of low mid boost. I first installed in a ash/maple P bass, but like it better in an alder/rosewood one. I bought this pickup for a P bass build with a roasted ash body and roasted maple & rosewood necked P bass build. Should be an interesting combination. I'm thinking about adding a Big-J Blade in the bridge position, but I may just keep it as a straight ahead P bass.

P-bass pickup replacement

Mid and high are quite similar to the original pickup, but low gives a nice fat punch to it.
