Split Jazz

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 3 customer ratings

$150.00$280.00

A loud, clear and even response to four string bass players with no hum. This bass pickup allows you to get all of the Jazz-Bass vibe that you love, minus the hum. Being a hum-cancelling Jazz Bass pickup, it’s fat, thick, and a little thicker sounding than a single-coil Jazz Bass.

Clear

Authentic 60’s Jazz Bass Tone, No Hum.

Our Split Jazz Bass® Replacements feature USA-Made magnets and wire, and are wound by hand, one at a time. Featuring a Left-Right Coil design for no-hum, we guarantee that you will absolutely love the sound of our Split Jazz Bass Replacements. We wind these Lindy Fralin Jazz Bass Replacements to 60’s specifications, using top-of the line materials to give you a clear, open tone: all across the board.

FEATURES:

  • Era-Authentic tone from the 60’s with no hum.
  • Wound with 43-Gauge Heavy Formvar Wire
  • Made with USA-Made AlNiCo V Pickups
  • Wound By Hand, One At A time, In Richmond, Virginia

SOUND:

Just like our Jazz Bass Replacements, just thicker, darker, and no hum. With our Fralin Split-Jazz Bass Replacements, you’ll get traditional 60’s tone, with more beef. These Fralin Pickups use USA-made AlNiCo V magnets and 43-Gauge Heavy Formvar wire to give your Jazz Bass an era-authentic tone. We offer (3) winding options to help you determine the perfect tone:

  • For an era-authentic 60’s tone, use our “Stock Wind”, or, choose “N/A” under output preference
  • For a thicker midrange and less highs, choose +5%. This will reduce the highs by 5%, and increase the lows and mids by 5%.
  • For an even thicker tone than the +5%, you can opt for +10%. This is perfect for anyone looking for an aggressively strong midrange and dark tone. Perfect for balancing out a bright sounding bass.
  • If you’re looking for a little cleaner tone, use our -5% wind. This will increase the highs by 5%, and decrease the mids by 5%.

Either way you choose it, picking Lindy Fralin Jazz Bass Replacements will give you a deeper, richer tone that you can’t find anywhere else.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION:

Available in four winding configurations. Use 250K Pots with these Fralin Jazz Bass Replacements. Available in 3 cover options: White, Black, and Aged White. These pickups fit a standard cover and bass with no modifications necessary.

    These pickups are a revelation. Anything I used to like about my Jazz Bass with its stock pickups is fully retained, but now it’s bigger-sounding, and has more range of tones with NO HUM AT ALL with either pickup favored or soloed. A dream come true!

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    I am looking to purchase some new pickups’ and these keep coming out on top.

    My question pertains to the following:

    1. For a thicker midrange and less highs, choose +5%. This will reduce the highs by 5%, and increase the lows and mids by 5%.
    2. For an even thicker tone than the +5%, you can opt for +10%. This is perfect for anyone looking for an aggressively strong midrange and dark tone. Perfect for balancing out a bright sounding bass.
    3. If you’re looking for a little cleaner tone, use our -5% wind. This will increase the highs by 5%, and decrease the mids by 5%.

    For all purposes i am a variety bas player I like playing contemporary jazz, but I also need to being to R7B and have the funky slap and I simply like hearing the tone when I am in the back ground holding down and can feel the sound of wood but it is coming from the P/U’s.

    And from the information given above I wouldn’t know which one to choose in o obtaining the describe sounds.

    Can you explain maybe a different way. also / Are these P/U’s compatible with most pre amps or which Pre=amp is a better match with them?

    Thanks

    • Thanks for your question, Gary. Whenever you add coil (+5%, +10%), you are increasing the output and resistance of the coil, which in turn reduces your high frequencies, and boosts your mid frequencies. Simply put, you get a thicker, darker sounding pickup.

      When reducing the amount of turns, you get more of an articulate, more “scooped mids” tone. Because this pickup model already sounds thicker and beefier than a stock Jazz Bass pickup (this model has two coils), I would recommend the Stock Output for your described playing style. Also, this pickup will work very nicely with any pre-amp – simply choose the one that best fits your style.

    Any recommendation for a Marcus miller jazz fender? Which of your pick ups configurations would help with crafting that Marcus Miller sound?

    • Hey Daniel,

      That’s a tough question to answer as Marcus Miller is known to play a variety of styles, but, if you were to slap more, I would go with the -5%. If you were looking for more low mids and a beefier tone, go with the +5%. If you want the best of both worlds, our Stock Output will be the one for you.
