Overview

The full-length dual blades of the ASB-BO Blackouts accommodate maximum string spacings up to 3.10" for a 5-string bass model.

The ASB-BO Blackouts are active pickups and electronics voiced for the aggressive bass tones of metal, classic metal, punk, and heavy rock. This neck and bridge set includes active bass soapbar pickups specifically voiced for aggressive music. Instead of the radical EQ boosting and cutting required to make flat, sterile pickups come alive, Blackouts for Bass delivers the goods with less tweaking. They have more of what you want, including cleaner highs, deeper lows, and greater dynamic range than traditional active bass pickups. This high energy, expansive sound is also capable of covering your other gigs with ease.

Amazing Pickups

By Eric

from New Haven, CT

Comments about Basslines ASB-BO-5s Blackouts for 5-String Bass - Neck & Bridge Set:

I've been waiting for these for over a year and they finally came! I installed them (along with Seymour Duncan's STC-3A 3 Band Tone Circuit) in a Schecter Stiletto Extreme 5 and they fit perfectly. They are direct replacements for EMG size bass pickups. Great tone from them with a lot of clarity. I was playing some harder and faster stuff in drop C# and it was much cleaner and punchier sounding than the stock pickups. These pickups deliver all the bass, mid, and treble you need while still keeping things tight without sounding muddy or thin. Get these, you won't regret it.

Perfect fit to replace EMG HZ 40's.

      Comments about Basslines ASB-BO-5s Blackouts for 5-String Bass - Neck & Bridge Set:

      Replaced the EMG soapbar pickups in my 2001 & 2003 Schecter Stilleto Elite Five Strings and EMG preamp/bass & treble pots with the Blackouts and two pot Seymour Duncan preamp. Amazing increase in pup output and treble & bass control. The power & tone is now equal to the new Schecter Stilleto Session basses. Perfect fit, but soldering can be confusing when soldering. However, Seymour Duncan technical assistance was easy to contact and very patient in assisting with my questions. For around $250 (pups & preamp with new pots included) my used value of $350 basses now sound like $900 new basses. Couldn't be happier with the outcome. NOTE: I did have to slightly file the holes for the new pots a little larger to fit the new pot stems.
