The parts that most affect the sound character of guitars and basses: pickups.
Click here for the previous blog → Bass Pickup Recommended Brands - Part 1!
I was planning to introduce the brands all at once, but the number of brands exceeded my expectations and I could only post a few ...
In the first installment, I introduced classic brands such as BARTOLINI, DIMARZIO, and AGUILAR, as well as the rapidly rising popular DELANO brand.
I will continue to introduce recommended electric bass pickup manufacturers whose products we handle here at Sound House!
Speaking of active pickups, don’t you think of EMG? I do! Compared to other brands, the magnets used have a weaker magnetic force, but the active circuit, at which they which excel, produces powerful, long sustain.
A super popular classic model that uses a ceramic magnet. Since the range is wider than alnico magnets, it is compatible to a wide range of genres like modern models.
It's synonymous with electric guitars and basses, not pickups. We also have a large selection at Sound House!
Genuine Fender Jazz Bass pickup. I like vintage and have one, but the magnetic force of the original has weakened, and Alnico 2 is just not enough due to lack of power. This is a model that I can confidently recommend, with a powerful sound while reproducing the sweet tone unique to vintage.
It may not be a manufacturer that you often see when looking at basses, but it is a very high quality pickup manufacturer. Kent Armstrong took over his father's repair shop in the early 1970s, and with the cooperation of guitar pickup maker Bill Lawrence, he launched the pickup brand "KENT ARMSTRONG".
Many of our brands are soap bar type models. The magnet is covered to prevent the magnetic force from decreasing due to sweat or dust. In this model, a ceramic magnet is used.
Lace! A brand that produces many unique models in both design and sound. The Lace Sensor series on Fender's former Eric Clapton model is now a global standard model.
A passive pickup that features low noise and high output despite being a single coil. This model is full-range and is specialized for jazz and blues sounds.
I can't see the end yet ... Will continue in Part 3.
Not all models are available for these brands, and when I was researching, there were still many unique models, so I would like to increase the number of models we have available. Please let me know if you have any requests. Then!
