    Hey guys!
    I am planing to buy new P pickup, I want warm, vintage, fat sound, I saw this pickup and it's cheap and there is no much informations about them. Does anyone have experiences with them?

    Thanx!!!! ;)

    i‘ve tried both korean made armstrong pbass pickup and european handwound closed cover precision pickup. All sounds good.
    VPB use alnico v magnet while handwound one has ceramic magnetic bar. handwound p pup's has more clarity and crystal treble when popping on G string, really nice sounding pickup to my ears.
    Bill lawrence pb46 sounds more fat and warm.
