Quarter Pounder with cheese? Yes!
yeah I was going to post that but I'm posting from a tablet and you know I am technologically challenged to say the least.
I have a QP installed on a 78 P since 1985. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but it worked really nice with a heavy ash body.
I have them in the green Precision and the sunburst Precision in my avatar pic.
I have a set in one of my Jazz basses and it is my go-to for rock and funk for that bass-in-yer-face sound. These QPs are so 'large' sounding, when I use the compressor on my amp, it gives such a GIGANTIC percussive pop due to the pickup/compressor. I am sometimes afraid it will blow a 15". Cool effect though and only happens with the punch Quarter Pounder!
Haha! Not gonna lie...I saw the title of this thread, and now I'm super hungry.
I put a set of those in my bass and hated it compared to the OEM's and that bass has not seen the light of day for a year.
I guess someday I will trade them off or just give them to someone as a gift just to get rid of them.
The quarter pounders are very satisfying, balanced, have great output, richer and fuller than standard, big in the mid section and an all around great buy for the money.
I've always loved the quarter pounders and they are always great when I play bass.
When I started the thread, I did not have hamburgers in my mind at all!
Nevertheless, quite a few of you jokey jokesters have made me chuckle about this!
I just have one question. What does Marsellus Wallace look like?
QPs in my Hondo P bass. Plywood never sounded so good.
For a hot pickup, I prefer the DiMarzio Model P because of the lack of upper mids in the QP. But it's a design that's lasted for a good while and it's excellent for those looking for more of a mid scoop than I am, so I give it respect.
Same for my plywood Fender Squier P-bass. Much improved tone over the stock pickup.
I also replaced the stock pickup on my Ibanez Blazer bass with a Quarter Pounder and it made a much smaller difference in tone. Still, I like tha ballsy tone.
I absolutely hate them in a P bass, the Jazz versions aren't too bad, but I dislike the fact that the poles do not stand proud of the flat work so they can sit flush with the pickup cover. It's an aesthetic oversight that I just can't get past.
Are those new? I have only seen them that look like these
This is the way mine look when installed.
I got it over a year ago but I can't say how long it had been on the shelf at the store. I guess a while because of the SD not Basslines logo?
I dislike them in a Jazz as they seem to kill the upper mid attack I love but I heard a few good sounding PBasses with QP's. At the end of the day I am not a fan of any kind of overwound/high output pickups, for bass or guitar.
Put one in a pbass and really liked it. Recorded it was fantastic, nice growl and all pbass.
It's not a fancy pub burger, it's a working class burger, not for the puritanical.
