MM like pickup in the shape of a J pup?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by i_got_a_mohawk, Apr 14, 2006.

  1. I know that alot of the MM sound is from the position and the size of the pickup, but are there any J sized pickups that have a similar sound?

    Im wiring up a P/J bass and was going to use a Model P and Model J (DiMarzio) but was just wondering about the posibilities of having a MM sounding pup

    probably a silly idea

    Well, I haven't heard every J pickup in the world, but my gut and my experience both say no.

    You could try emailing William Villex and asking what he has to offer.


    I ended up getting some soapbars from him that were MM style humbucking sound for my fretless - they sound really awesome.

    Aren't there those J pups with 4 big poles (or whatever they're called) instead of 4 doubled small ones like a regular jazz pup?
