Ibanez Mikro with EMG Geezer Butler P/J pickups!

This is my Ibanez Mikro equipped with a P/J set of Geezer Butler pickups, wired directly in standard parallel connection to the output plug of the bass. In this clip I only ran the bass through my EHX Black Finger, which I here used primarily as a tube preamp and with the compression part of it almost turned off, directly into my sound interface with no additional sound processing or EQ'ing done

This is my Ibanez Mikro equipped with a P/J set of Geezer Butler pickups, wired directly in standard parallel connection to the output plug of the bass, that means bypassing all controls, pots and caps.

In this clip I only ran the bass through my EHX Black Finger, which I here used primarily as a tube preamp and with the compression part of it almost turned off, directly into my DAW through my sound interface and with no additional sound processing or EQ'ing done to the signal.

Even if the tube preamp used is set to just around breakup point, and of course it would have sounded both better and more massive through my actual rehearsal/live rig, than this recording where no EQ'ing, cab or amp emulation was added to the signal, I think this gives a fairly good impression of what these pickups are capable of.

Those pickups took my Ibanez Mikro from sounding fairly tolerably decent to just right out amazing.
