Dunlops Blackouts Basslines Preamps...Neat!

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by isher1992, Jul 28, 2012.


  1. I bought two of these for my Squiers (P/J and P) and installed it today for the second time (Yay for bad grounds) and wow. It really livens up the P/J quite nicely. Also added some WD pots, 250K on the J and 500K on the P and everything sounds nice and...well, P/J bass-ey.

    Now if I can just stop crying from the fact I have to pay 80 dollars to have someone else install them in the other one...

    Sorry for the false title, I was doing too much at once. :) They're made by Seymour Duncan

    You mean Duncan Blackouts, but Dunlop.

    $80 to install pickups? Go somewhere else.
     
  3. No, no, not Pickups. It's a 2-band active preamp.

    See?

    I was kinda shocked at that too, but it's to route the cavity in the P-bass for the battery. Tempted to break out the dremel tool and do it myself again.

    Oh, there's routing involved. So that's about right price.

    Just the preamp should be about $30.
     
  5. I already have the preamp.

    He meant that the cost of preamp installation without any routing involved should be about $30.
