Overview

The Basslines SCPB-3 Quarter-Pound is a single-coil P-Bass pickup recommended for blues, classic rock, garage, heavy rock, classic rock and nu-metal. Developed for the bassist who need the slammin' output of the Hot but with even stronger attack. The 1/4" diameter pole pieces add more string sensitivity than the Hot pickup. The Basslines Quarter-Pound pickup delivers aggressive tonal response with strong bottom end and lots of mids. Also adds tremendous tonal versatility to a single pickup electric bass.

Pretty decent pickup

Comments about Basslines SCPB-3 Quarter-Pound Single-Coil P-Bass Pickup:

I swapped out a stock pickup in my '51 japanese reissue P-Bass. This new Duncan really made the guitar sound great. Full body, plenty of note clarity. Everything about the pickup's performance (tonally) is great. If you're putting this into a P-bass, i'm assuming you like a more vintage, old-school growly sound. The quater-pound delivers all that with plenty of output to get a nice overdriven sound when you push the gain. I run through ampeg amps and playing shows where i'm running through a DI people will alway compliment my tone. The only thing bad about this pickup (naturally because it's a single coil) is a 60-cycle hum. Sounds more like a buzz to me...like a faint flourecent light is on inside the amp. But if you can deal with that, you have yourself a nice pickup.

Comments about Basslines SCPB-3 Quarter-Pound Single-Coil P-Bass Pickup:

i build basses and decided to pair this with a gfs music man in a p-bass style body. i use vol, tone, and blend pots (cts). this pup by itself works as a stand-alone pickup if you're interested in fairly low-medium volume slap/pop stuff but just hasnt got the output to compete with the music man. i generally have the blend pot barely rolled into the basslines pup to add a little high end. i mostly play heavier stuff so maybe it's a bad choice as half of a bass that's built to really rock. all pups have their style and tone, if you like old school (which i do too) this might be for you. if you're thing is more aggressive..skip this one.
