    I just was at the Sadowsky site and see that they sell Humcancelling J/J for 4-string....

    do they fit in a Geddy Lee Jazz Bass

    how would they compare?

    thanks

    In general humcancelling pickups have more bottom and not as bright as regular single coils.

    I recently put a set of Nordstrand NJ4SE humcancellers in my Fender Am JBass and it sounds great now. More bottom, a lot more punch, and very defined sound. You should check those out too.

    DiMarzio Ultra J's are my favorite hum cancelling J's..plus you can wire them for series/parallel.
     
  4. Would you not be able to wire Sadowsky's into a Series/Parallel switch?

    Also, not to steal the thread, but does anyone have some sound clips of these? I'm interested in a pair, but I don't have any idea what they sound like. If anyone does, post them on here or PM me with the clips. Thanks:bassist:

    from what i've heard, sadowsky humcancelling pus are made by dimarzio and are very similar to the ultra jazz pus...

    i think his single coils are made by seymore duncan.

    If you look in the pickups FAQ you'll see a link to a thread of mine which has samples of a bunch of pickups - including Dimarzio and Sadowsky humcancelling in a Geddy Lee Jazz.

    they're definitely in the same ballpark, but the Sadowskys are less scooped than the UJ's.
