I installed this unit on a five string bass and use the GI20 MIDI convertor. Both are working great. I find the tracking and accuracy rate very good overall. I found the installation straight forward. The pickup comes with all the adapters necessary for most bass configurations. I will note that I had an initial tracking problem that was due to my rush to try the darn thing out. On the neck side of the pickup are two screws that allow you to adjust for varied string spacing. Make sure you take the time to align these. It greatly increases the accuracy of tracking. PS. Thank you Roland Support! they had me squared away in less than ten minutes.

I boughrt this pickup and paid one of your technicians to set it up on my bass to work with my Roland GR55. So far all i have heard was a lot of reasons why the tech cannot get it to work. Yet I am out of money for the purchase for the device, the "work" your tech put in?, and the time spent in your shop and not in my hands playing. I am scheduled for a second time to bring in my guitar and pickup to see if the tech can fix it and get it running. Otherwise I will ask for my money back. I hope whoever is reading this makes sure i am get my satisfaction in this matter. I spend a lot of money with GC. Right now I am not a happy camper.

      Even worked on this!!

      By john klingbiel

      from Las Vegas NV

      Comments about Roland GK-3B Divided Pickup:

      So I have a squire bronco bass that I converted to a 5 string( used a kahler bridge) installed the GK-3B at a slant to compensate for the narrow string spacing,adjusted the string velocity ,set the GR-55 for short scale bass,and I can say that it works great!!! The tracking is a little slower on the low string( I tune my bass in 5ths CGDAEB low to high) but that is to be expected....to be able to add synth strings,and pads,hold chords,distorted guitar an octave above is just so cool!! Take the time to learn the GR-55, or whatever roland synth your using,the payoff is so worth it!!! Get the GK- 3B,put it on your bass,and have a blast!!!

          Not perfect, but...

          By Larry Allen

          from Orange County, CA

          Comments about Roland GK-3B Divided Pickup:

          Guitar synthesis, especially for bass, is limited by the laws of physics. It takes tens of milliseconds to detect the frequency of a low frequency signal, which can cause audible latency on the lowest notes of the lowest strings. The tracking with a GR-55 is as good for bass as it is for guitar. Not perfect, but easily good enough to add new dimensions to your sound. It isn't the same as playing a regular bass, just like an electric guitar doesn't play like an acoustic guitar. But you can make excellent music with any of them. The GK-3B is cleverly designed to fit on as many instruments as possible, and you don't have to drill any holes. I chose to mount the pickup with screws so I could dial it in for best performance.

          Unfortunate

          By Theodore Roach

          from sumner, MS 38957

          Comments about Roland GK-3B Divided Pickup:

          I recently purchased a Roland GK-3B divided Pickup (7703730) &Roland GR 20S synthesizer. The pickup was not compatible with the bass guitat I have and I had to return both of these items. I'm sure both items would have performed to my satifaction. Because the pickup was not compatible,I had to return the items. When this transaction is completed, I do plan to make another Purchase in the near future.

          Awesome!!!

          By Shaptone

          from Tennessee

          Comments about Roland GK-3B Divided Pickup:

          I use this in Combination with a GI-20, it is truly an amazing and sensitive pick-up and very accurate. The fact that you can switch your patches right on the interface is very cool. I use it live to control VSTI's and to provide synth leads and ambient pads to my set. It really has brought a whole different approach to how I make music and perform and I am loving it. I would suggest getting a GI-20 with this. The only complaint I have is that when I set the switch to Bass only I still get midi coming through, but I believe this to only be a defect in my product, and Roland is working to get it fixed.

          Better than GK-2b

          By JDrag0n

          from Winchester, VA

          Comments about Roland GK-3B Divided Pickup:

          It's a whole lot better than the GK-2b and alot smaller, but still difficult to install. It shold come with a right-angle/straight patch cable for blending your regular p/u in instead of a straight straight because you have to take it off every time before you put in back in your case. I also wish that the cabel from the pickup to the contraol was shorter but if your careful you can wind it all up inside the tiny hole in the back. It's really the only decent choice for use with your roland v-bass and it is way better than the 2b was.
