Lots of punch to be had when installed in my Mexi P-Bass. However, this punch came at the expense of bottom end clarity, even with 2x10" and 2x15", sometihng that is valuable to my style. However, I could see this working wiht more punk and similar stylings. The overall quality is as good as you expect from SD: decent, but no extreme high end stuff (a la fralin, lollar, etc.). the polepieces weren't adjustable, but that's a minor qualm, really. Overall, I'd say it's good response if you don't want extreme low end.

Bought these for a project bass, wanted the P bass sound with some bite! Got high mids and treble but NO BASS! Well no.....the E string has bass just not A,D, or G. And the A string is way more quiet then the rest. I know how to set up my bass's and have replaced pickups before, infact took bass into GC and they checked everything said my work and set up was fine and said they didn't know why it sounded like that but would'nt let me return them. Should have got the EMG Geezer Butler Pickup, I know it sounds great, just wanted a differant sound.......guess I got it.

simply amazing

By Christian

from roseville ca

i purchased these pickups for my mim precision bass and to put it simply they are probably the best pickups ever made. they completely transformed my bass from sounding mediocre to a bass that everybody compliments me on for the tone. these pickups are so high output its not even funny, these things are loud very loud at lest one and a half times louder than the stock mim pickups. the treble on these pickups are crazy even with treble rolled all the way off its theres still more than enough treble. the lows on these pickups are also very serious they can and WILL shake the room. also the mids are pretty good but i dont really care to much about mids. because these pickups are so hot the distortion i get is so clear and heavinly. i would honestly recomend these pickups to anyone no matter what kind of music you play because i believe these are the greatest split p pickups there are.

Clear tone with a sweet growl

By RICHARD

from Lynnwood, WA

I swapped out the DP127 pickups in my Squire Bass for the SPB-3 and WOW, what a difference! Now I have the clear tone and P Bass growl that I love. Improvising comes easier with the new sound and the increased sustain. Before you ditch your less expensive bass because you're frustrated with the sound, do an upgrade to these babies. The installation was easy, and for just a few bucks you get quality sound.

Great Buy and Sound But....

By WILL MALLORY

from Toledo, OH

I purchased these pickups online which took longer than expected due to website errors, Installed them myself sounded great and were pretty easy to install but the only thing about these are the covers aren't attached and they don't come with risers and most stock ones don't give the correct hight. Besides that these are a great buy. and great value. I put them on my spuier p-bass and sounds much better. they give the punky growl and chunky sound I was looking for.

Amazing Pickups, Great for any syle

By Greg

from Oak Lawn Illinois

I bought a Cheap Squire P bass a while back and installed the SPB 3's and it sounds amazing now, many people have asked me how my bass sounds so good only being a Squire and i point to the pickups. These pickups sound amazing for Jazz, Rock, Metal, and Funk. I was so impressed that i went out and bought another set for my Ibanez Gio that i modified, This thing now sounds like a Pro's bass. These Pickups are Straight up amazing, and have a price that wont burn a hole in your wallet. I've heard many people say that active pickups and electronics are the way to go, But these pickups state the exact opposite. I highly recomend these pickups to anyone with a P bass or a P J bass set up that want a better sound, you wont regret purchasing these pickups.

So good

By Jon

from Colo Springs, CO

I put these in my Ibanez GSR 100, we're talking a low end bass even for beginners. The tone I have now is phenomenal, so much low end and so much growl in the mids, not to mention the big boost in output. I've had a friend replace his AMERICAN Fender P-bass pickups with these. My friend is an experienced soundman and has been playing bass for nearly 15 years, he knows great tone and I like to think I do too. These pick ups will be a major improvement over almost any stock pick up, they make my cheap bass sound better than a $1500 bass and for the price its well worth it. BUY THEM

Totally renewed my old bass

By Les Paul 25-50

from Fort Myers, FL

I have a Kawai bass that's over 20 years old. Stock, it had Schecter pickups (1 precision, 1 jazz). So far I've only replaced the precision with this SPB3 pickup (wanted to see if it was worth it before getting both) and bypassed the existing tone knob with in/out switches for phase or who knows what. Just pickup to volume knob to pickup balance knob (it never used a 3 position switch) to 1/4" jack. Nice clean signal path. WOW!!! I always liked the feel of my bass but never was too impressed by the sound until now! It's made ALL my mixes sound HUGE! Even after adjusting height on my old pickups, the individual strings were never were at the same volume (low E loudest, quieter as you switched to higher strings). This pickup solved that problem!!! Thank you Seymore Duncan and thanks Guitar Center for having it in stock at my local store and for a great price!!! I'll be back to replace the jazz pickup for sure!!!!

Refreshing sound, great price!

By Paul

from Berkley, Michigan

Freind gave me a 2002 squire P-bass so before I chunked it in the trash I figured it might be nice to keep around the house. The pick up was shot so I got these Quarter Pounders on the advice of my Guy at Guitar Center... WOW... Easy to install and sound great. You will need to pay close attention to the mount hieght. I used high density rubber foam (0.99 at a craft store) to fill in the space under the pick-up. This gives you the Profile needed to "catch" the strings. Once in, these babys will purr and buck with little noise. At very high volumes they dont perform as well as the EMG's in my Dean but that is a different Beast... ...get them now!

Great pickups for rock playing

By Jason

from El Dorado Hills, CA

I got these pickups for my Mexican Fender P Bass a while ago and they sound great. I knew these were the right pickups for me because they're made for rock playing and i play with a pick. They have more output and more punch other than the original fender pickups. I would recommend these pickups if you play any kind of rock!

Nice and full tone!

By Shabba

from Houston, TX.

I installed this pickup on a Chinese-made Squire P-Bass that I had originally purchased as a practice/rehearsal bass. The SPB-3 pickup gave my bass deeper lows, and a more defined tone. The mids and highs are very smooth, plus the output is boosted and it adds plenty of P-bass "growl". This bass has now been transformed into something I would actually do a gig with. I highly recommend this pickup.
