Our Tone starts here: our manufacturing process. It allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Our ’51 P-Bass Pickups consist of USA-Made magnets and wire. Our bobbins are hand-built using local fiberboard and incredible attention to detail. We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time. Each pickup is wound using our proprietary “Sectioning” technique. This gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone.
We assemble each pickup one at a time, by hand. This allows us to achieve unbeatable attention to detail. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to preserve the pickup, and prevent microphonics.
- What output do I choose? Good question. For the most balanced tone between highs and lows, go to the Stock Output, which is a replica of the earliest P-Basses. If you’re looking for a thicker and darker tone, opt for the +5% Output. If you’re looking for a cleaner and more articulate sound, opt for the -5% output.
- Why is the A string the tallest? That’s the way Fender did them back in the day. You can certainly request a custom stagger, if you’d like. Just use the “Notes Field” on the checkout screen.
- Will this pickup fit my bass? We don’t know! Definitely check below under “Sizing Information” for our size. You’ll want to double check for sure.
