Bartolini Ps

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Davidoc, Mar 10, 2001.


  1. What are your opinion on these? I am trying to decide what pickups to purchase. Bartolini seems to be a favored brand overall on this board. I was considering emg actives after advice, but i realized it was too expensive.

    (EMG pickups sell for a good price, but when the electronics are added it sums up to alot.)

    So are Bartolini Ps good pickups?

    I put Bartolini 8S pickups in my Fender MIM P last year. The Barts are powerful and well rounded. They're a tremendous improvement over the stock pickups.

    I almost put a Bart 8S in my '75 P and at the last minute got talked into trying a Rio Grande which turned out great. But I did put Barts in my '98 MIA Jazz and the difference was nothing less than remarkable. Based on my J experience I would not hesitate to put Barts in a P.
     
  5. Incredibly clear, defined, and it doesn't sound harsh like my old one!
