    I really like them. I really love their H50a and the MM HB5 pickup , the J99a sounds really good too but it is a single coil. (too noisy for me)

    If you are the kind who listen with your Visa card , you probably won't like 'em.

    I have a couple of bass with Graphtech Ghost kit in them with the Acoustiphonic piezo preamp , have this for 2 years.
    I much prefer the sound of Carvin's piezo preamp of my LB75PF than the Graphtech.

    I ordered a piezo preamp from Carvin for my Graphtech bass , I'll report back.

    Carvin has been making pickups since the 50s. They make nice sounding pickups.
