New life to my Jazz bass

By Mike Campbell

from Toledo, OH

Comments about Basslines SJ5-3S Quarter-Pounder Pickup for 5-String Jazz Bass Set:

I own a 5 string Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass that was made in 2008. It sounded great right off the shelf, but seemed to always lack in volume. It had good tone, but seemed to always be missing that special something. I ordered this pickup set and had them installed. I brought my bass back home a few days later and was completely blown away when I turn my amp on and began playing. With my on-board preamp set flat, my sound was louder, clearer, had more attack, and the B string was incredible. As a matter of fact, these pickups really help eliminate the floppy, farty sound that 34" scale fivers tend to bring with their B strings. This alone is worth buying the pickups for. The balance between the strings was perfect. The highs were clear, but not harsh, the mids stood out, and the low end was solid, enunciated, and punchy. If your bass seems to be missing that special something, give these a try. You will love them. I have yet to meet a bass player that does not like these pickups. I can clearly see why these are one of the most popular pickups Guitar Center and Seymour Duncan sells.

    Comments about Basslines SJ5-3S Quarter-Pounder Pickup for 5-String Jazz Bass Set:

    These pickups dropped right into my Fender American Deluxe Jazz 5 string. No concerns about these dimensions matching up with the stock pick guard or pre-drilled screw holes. Most importantly these are by far more powerful than the stock N3 noiseless options that are currently installed in the American Deluxe Jazz series. Understandly the N3 stock options are supposed to closely replicate the original jazz bass pups. But the N3's for some reason were far too weak even when drawn up close to the strings. No real personality or drive and the active option pushed them too far in the other direction.

    The SJ5 pickups are a great affordable option to put some much needed life into your bass. They almost double the stock output of an N3 but are very controlled and nicely voiced.

      Comments about Basslines SJ5-3S Quarter-Pounder Pickup for 5-String Jazz Bass Set:

      I replaced my original fender pickups with a set of SJ5-3S Quarter-Pounder Pickups and it sounds like a different bass. I can not express how much the sound improved. The low end is low and the mid highs are very balanced. My only regret is not changing these sooner.
