Can anyone attest to the string balance of Bartolini J's?

    Bartolini describes the dual coil J series as a "P bass in a box." The magnet structures inside are offset but I'm wondering if they're tilted on the vertical axis like P pickups are.

    Any experience with them?

    I've found most J PU's to be unbalanced when the bass is properly set up.

    I have a pair of Bart single coils (9s) and they have good string to string balance. Other pickups I have tried in my jazz bass suffered - EMG JV, Dimarzio Ultra J.

    Never tried split coils Barts.

    i have dual coils in my jazz.

    they sound great and seem to have a higher output.

    the strings seem to be balanced very well.
