Ken Smith dual coils for 19mm spacing
These dont come up very often.
I had these in a Lakland 5501. They sound awesome in there with a Demeter preamp but I'm selling the bass to a friend so he can put in some Nordy Big Splits. I'm keeping my other 5501 with Lane Poors and an Aggie OBP3 which is also a great matchup and that makes the other expendable.
It's not a perfect drop in for 5501 pickup cavities because these pickups are wider and shorter than Bart's. The pic will show how they fit.
Dimensions are 4"x1 7/16"
Price drop to
$195 shipped conus Attachment 356842 Attachment 356843

Bump for a great set of PU's and super, super hard to find used here on the forums.

Makes me wish I still had my 55-01 to put these into!
Tried a set of KS pickups in another bass and they were KILLER. GLWTS bump.

Thanks guys. These are wonderful pickups that sound exceptional with Ash and Maple. You start to hear some early Patitucci type tones come from your instrument.

These are back on the market. Deal didn't work out.
|Halegroove ||08-29-2013 08:33 AM |
Available for all you 19mm guys.
|Halegroove ||08-30-2013 10:39 AM |
Pimp your Skyline or any other 3/4" spacing.
|bgartist ||08-30-2013 01:15 PM |
Do you have the actual dimensions? Are they similar to the Bart BC shape?
|bassguyky48 ||08-30-2013 01:29 PM |
They look sorta like EMG 40 shape, but of course Halegroove will give the exact dimensions.
|Halegroove ||08-30-2013 02:56 PM |
Dims look like 4" x 1 7/16" for both

Just to remind folks, Smith basses go up to the 5,000--$6,000 or more price range. These Pickups are the heart of those fabulous bass creations. Very rare.......another set might be 6 months down the road here on the forums.

Right you are bassguyky!

Free bump for having installed these PUs into the lakland for Halegroove. I personally thought they killed paired with a Bart Pre-amp (didn't expect that!) but also really good with a Demeter. Somebody buy these!

That's coming from an ear witness and valued opinion.
|Halegroove ||09-18-2013 06:29 AM |
Almost forgot I had these bump. So I'll drop em to $195 shipped.

These look pretty interesting. Did you have to modify the 55-01 pickup routs to make them fit? I've only played one Smith ever (loved it), care to comment on how they sounded in the 55-01? I see only two wires per pickup, does that mean these are humbucking only and coil switching is a non-option?
Incidentally I have a Demeter pre in my 55-01 already, with the Tyler mod. Wrings all the available tone out of the MK-1 pickups but also clearly shows their deficiencies..
Edit - Saw your comment re. sounding good in ash/maple, which is what I've got. I guess what I meant was does anybody have a comparison of what these might do vs the Bart MK5s I've been thinking of? Do you happen to know what bass they were in originally (what model Smith)? I don't know much about Smiths, so I don't know if they use the same pickups across all their models or not. Thanks!
