Hey guys so Im hoping you can shed some light on the differences between these two pickups. Ive read many threads and Ive talked to a few folks too, but I still dont think I have a grasp of what Big Singles sound like youtube clips included (as they dont truly put the bass in your hands). I hear good things & bad things. Here is what Ive got thusfar, and Im hoping some of you folks can chime in. I hear they are overall more strong in the mids & fundamental compared to NJ4/5s. Ive also read comments that they sound nothing like single coils Kjungs who usually describes things in a way I hear too. It seems the offset coils give the pickups a larger apreature of the string, yielding a thinker tone. Some call it an almost humbucker(dual coil) like tone. Wider & thicker is all good with me, but I dont want to lose any of that immediacy I get from standard NJ4/5s. Are Big Singles as quick and fast responding to little nuances in playing just like NJ4/5s? Or are they really that humbucker like? More mids - here, upper, lower, etc... ? Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Im considering a build and dont know what direction to go in and I have no way of playing them aside from borrowing a bass from a dealer which I really dont like doing.
