    If you've never tried these pickups you owe it to yourself to give em a shot. I'm pretty sure Malmsteen uses the guitar version of Reflex and I saw a set going for $300 on eBay a while back.
    Designed in England by John Oram, who is not only brilliant but genuinely nice. They were to compete with EMG in the late 80s but for whatever reason, never caught on here in the states. I've used several sets and will still have my PJ set that I won't sell.
    They are dead quiet and don't sound sterile like some EMGs can sound. I had them in my main studio session bass until my best friend talked me out of the bass after years of pleading.

    $50 shipped conus

    Yes. And they use 10 K pots instead of the usual 25k like EMG

    I sold Greg his first set of these almost 20 Years ago.
    They are the most unusual pickups with the widest tonal range I have ever heard.
    Greg uses these on a bass instrumental album.
    Awesome only begins to describe the tone!!
