    I'm getting some Delano Soapbars soon...Oh yes. Bye-bye Barts. :) Then again...you already asked me! :) ;)
     
  3. Delano's are real nice. I don't own a bass with Delano's but Sandbergs and Clovers come with them and those sound great.

    How are they different from Barts, would you say?

    I'm looking for 6-string MM pickups, and they're on the short list of those I've found.

    P.S. where are you buying them from?

    I finally got my Bee Bass. We decided to go with Delano Quad Coils and Aguilar OBP-3. Sounds great. Major beef and punch with zero noise. I don't think the single coil mode has quite as much 'burp' as vintage J P/U's, but they're still pretty good. They're pretty full all the way around.

    For someone looking for an alternative to Barts, I'd say try them out.

    Cool. I ended up going for some custom Barts on my next bass. They're still not done (no ETA either), so I'm kinda thinking "doh!" maybe I should've ordered some Delano MC6s. Oh well. :cool:

    First off Wylie, your new Bee is soooooooo beautiful!

    Is there any way to get us a sound clip? I've been interested in the Delano soapbars for some time now.

    Thanks.

    I can try to get something down in the near future. I just got a session booked for later this week, but I don't know if we'll end up with the Bee or my F. I'll be sure to post something when I do.
