Fender Noiseless pickups replacements
Hello guys, first of all sorry about my english........itīs not my language
I have a Fender (2006) mim deluxe JB with noiseless pickups and active electronics ( everything stock) , and iīm planning to replace the pickups but keep the electronics, i want to change just the pickups.
Wich is a good pickup replacement keeping the stock fender active electronics?
I love classic sounds but with active versatility
Noiseless pickups are passive, and i want to maintain the same configuration....passive pickups with active electronics.
Well, sorry again about my english, i hope you understand what i need....
Please forgive my lack of help. I can't answer your question.
I would only like to say that your use of English above is excellent (you only misspelled wich = "which" and native speakers do that all the time). Well done.
Assuming you want to stay hum-free and don't want to spend lots of cash: DiMarzio Area J. I think you'll find a substantial tone improvement.
Dimarzio Ultra J or Area J pickups would be a good place to start, depending on what tone you are trying to achieve by changing the pickups. They are both hum cancelling and very well regarded here, and also very affordable.
Sadowsky humcanceling j's are awesome!
Iīm looking for the most classical jazz bass sound between active eq/preamp ( i like the original fender that comes with my bass) and pickups, keeping hum cancelling.
Iīm not really in love with Fender noiseless.
Dimarzio Area, Ultra, which models is better.....thatīs the question...
Maybe Sadowsky but it is to expensive.
Thanks from Chile
If you want hum cancelling pickup then the Area J, if you want classic single coil pickups i would suggest Seymour Duncan or regular Fender.
I have a deluxe jazz (5 string), and I have Aguilar single coils in it. I know they're not hum cancelling (unless you 50/50 the pickups of course), but it really brings it in line with the classic J bass tone I'm so at home with. In my experience singles are the only way to really achieve this, but that's just me. The pre amp sounds great with the singles, the only downside is that there is a bit too much treble with the singles but I just roll it off and it sounds smoking.
I have played the Nordstrand split coil J pickups in a passive bass and they really did a great single coil impression, so they may be worth considering too. Quite traditional sounding, and of course quiet.
Worth throwing that out there ..
Another vote for DiMarzio Area J's, which are in my 2002 Fender American Deluxe Jazz now, having replaced the original Noiseless pickups. A very, very substantial tone improvement! :D
