Just arrived- the new design- Better tone, Better punch, DEAD silent!REDactives Jazz bass pickups give you all the great vintage warmth, tone and FEEL... with greatly reduced 60 cycle hum, buzz or RF noise.
These are true vintage style pickups... noise cancelling and fully shielded, then built a super low noise, lo-impedance preamp to give you the kind of earth-shaking POWER that is so tough to get out of passive pickups. We've calibrated this pickup to avoid the pitfalls of many active Jazz Pickups- We've dialed in the BOTTOM end on these. These are not 100% noise cancelling like our Pbass pickups but are noise reduced- and sound great!
The "DIP SWITCH" versions of REDactive pickups incorporate a user-selectable preamp and EQ section- You can chose standard or +10db output gain, and chose from normal or +12db boost for Treble and Bass. This is PERFECT to balance pickups by position or give an unusually dead or thin guitar the extra bass or treble it needs!
Like all REDactives the Pbass style pickups use a 3 prong quick connector and you can install them in ANY bass using our "Plug-N-Play" solderless system. The pickup does come with a nice long lead if you prefer to install with conventional soldering.
We prefer a 25K volume and tone and a .2uf tone cap- all of which we sell in the REDactive electronics category.
The pickup comes retail boxed with screws, foam pads, a nice long connector cable and illustrated instructions.
