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:

    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!

    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?

    • Tyler-Fralin Pickups

      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.

    Hello fine folks! Fabian here with a Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass that is my baby. I really like Geddy Lee’s tone as it’s biting and very powerful in the mid-range. Which pickup would seem like the right choice for me?

    • Tyler Delsack – Fralin Pickups

      Hey Fabian,

      I’d check out the +5%, as this set is already a little beefier than our Stock Jazz Bass pickups.

    Been playing with the pickups for a little over a month and love them. Haven’t yet installed the 5-string pickups but that’ll happen soon I expect to like them a lot.

    I’n Looking for a punchy, growly, aggressive but now overalt bright bridge pickup.
    I also need a bit more bottom and High end from my neck pickup.

    I thought about using + 5% bridge PU and 0% neck PU. Would that achieve my goals ?

    • Tyler Delsack – Fralin Pickups

      Jon,

      Sure thing, that will probably do what you’re looking for!

    My ’71 Jazz bass sounds better than ever after installing a set of “Split Jazz” pickups. The high output and great tone with both pickups at full volume is impressive. Being able to vary the pickup volumes separately without the buzz, expands the variety of tones available. Thanks.

    Which wind (+5%, +10%) do you recommend for a P bass-like tone when soloing the neck pickup?
    I use flatwounds and prefer an old school, mid-heavy sound…
    Thanks!

    • Tyler Delsack – Fralin Pickups

      You might like the +10% for this. That will be the thickest and darkest / most midrange you can get out of this pickup!
