    A few years ago a bass magazine posted a comparison chart of all the different jazz pickups inclusing DiMarzio, Lane Poor, Bartolini, and a whole slew of other pickups. They included ratings for output, clarity, warmth and things like that as well as a small description for each pickup.

    Does anyone have the link to this or know where I can find it? I remember it as being a red/orange/yellow colored page I think.

    I think we could all find this useful.

    You can get pretty much the same stuff here.

    Take a look at the Pickups FAQ located at the top of this forum.
    There are a couple of threads there dedicated to J-pup reviews, really excellent threads.

    It is old but most of the pickups reviewed are still on the market and IMHO still the top contenders. Having said that, I agree that Nordstrand is one to condider as well.

    It's probably time BP did another comaprison on Jazz and P pickups.

    One thing for sure, that review generated a lot of business for Aero and SD!! :)

  5. Hey Maurillo,
    Thanks for posting that tone chart.I've been looking for that and also asked here on this forum about it.I know there are new pickups now but I was looking for a comparison of Basslines humbuckers vs Ultrajazz pickups.
