I made some comparison sound samples of three pickups on the same bass. There is no particular question in this post, I just provide these samples for anyone interested. Any comments and opinions are welcome though. Pickups that were compared: 1) Shadow SH950 - two double-sided piezo elements in bridge wings 2) B-band Statement System. Only the "under-the-feet" element was used in this test, not the bridge wing elements. 3) Realist - the new wooden version The bass was 80 years old Czech 3/4 instrument, smaller body, string length 108cm (42,5"), fresh Spirocore mittel strings (S42, 4/4). Recorded through LR Baggs Mixpro (10MOhm Input impedance), flat EQ settings (which is not in the middle knob position - I had to measure this). mp3 samples here notes: 1) SH-950 was purchased in 2001. It may have changed since that time. 2) Bband purchased in 2005. It is no more in production, however the sensors are probably the same as in the current D1 Double Bass system. This is a system of 3 sensors. Two are placed under the bridge wings, one under the bridge foot. I use only the single sensor under the bridge leg, because I found that the wing elements cannot compete in sound with SH950. I disassembled the BBand system and I use only the single element of it. I blend it with Shadow when I need the string sound.
