    J45 is a great pickup. Very clear, very quiet. I ran mine passive. They would probably do fine with the Bart pre given their clarity.

    Both the J-45 & P-46 (P Bass pickup) are champs.

    How does the neck pickup sound when soloed? I'm interested in trying a set in my Carvin BK4 but it's impossible around here to find someone who has one in a bass that I could try. Of course, the very long waiting time puts me off too.
  6. The neck pickup soloed gives a very big bottom with the perfect mid growl.It's funny beacause i'm more of a bridge pickup guy but,honestly this is the best souding neck pickup I've ever heard.I will try to make some sound clips and post them.I fully recomend these pickups for quiet,vintage sound.

    Thanks. That's exactly what I was hoping. I think I'll order a set and just hope they arrive sometime this year.

    I'd be interested in hearing a soundclip when you have time.
