these are for my modulus genesis jazz bass. Which do you prefer and why? Thanks, Marc
Have you thought about a set of Nordstrand NJ4 vintage jazz pickups? They're a direct replacement for a standard jazz and have a similar, but slightly different tone that I would recommend considering. However, these two are also excellent choices....just slight variations on the same theme.
Lindy fralin. I use them and I am familiar with the tone they produce, and I like it!
Very Vintage sounding.
Fender CS 60s are not all that 'vintage' sounding, if this is what you are after. However, I have a pair, and I love them.
I have a set of Fender 60's Jazz pickup's...they sound good but the output is not as hot as I would like. I have yet to find a set of pickups with the output of Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders or even DiMarzio Ultras.
Whereis a good place to get the DiMarzio ultrajass pups? Musicians friend only sells the Model J's.
Just remember, generally, higher output means more midrange and less highs. I run my CS 60s with a J-Retro, so no problem with output.
I haven't tried the Fender CS pups, but I do have a set of Lindy Fralins. The Fralin pups are amazing. My Lakland Joe Osborn with Fralin pups is my number 1 bass.
