For Sale/Trade Seymour Duncan Active EQ P Pickups

Discussion in 'For Sale: Parts, Strings, and Accessories' started by BrandonA119, Nov 29, 2016.

  1. Price:

    For sale this set of active Pickups fro the mid 80s. Very popular back then. They come with 3 small rocker switches to modify the output tone and "feel" of the sound, one of the most versatile active PUs ever made.
    Check out this description from the Seymour Duncan Forum:
    "We stopped making the switch pickups ("Active EQ") in the mid-'90s. We replaced them with the Pro-Active™ series. The little rocker switches on the Active EQ pickups change the sound. Switch #1 shifts the coil resonance. On a Jazz Bass® neck pickup and a P Bass® pickup, the resonance moves downward from 22 KHz to 6.4 KHz. On a Jazz Bass bridge pickup, it move downwards from 17 KHz to 4.9 KHz. The effect is to give a more focused sound with a harder attack. Switch #2 gives a broad band bass boost of 4 dB for the Jazz Bass neck and P Bass pickups, and 5 dB for the Jazz Bass bridge. The switches can be a very effective tool for changing the tonal "character" of your instrument."
