    Hello fellow TBers out there!

    I've got a pretty simple (I guess..) question I hope someone can answer for me :)

    I'm playing on my Fender Jazz Bass in a hardrock band.

    While I like the thin and smooth neck on the jazz bass, i sort of miss that "growly"(?) tone of humbucker pickups.

    So my question is, can the Seymour Duncan pickup booster turn my singlecoil sound into a humbucker sound? I know Seymour Duncan says so, I just want to hear from someone who actually have tried to use this pedal with singlecoil pickups.

    Thanks in advance!

    From what I understand the pedal will introduce more gain into your sound. Think about that difference, chances are it will solve your problem and give you a more throaty and well..higain sound.
    The pedal refers to the difference between sound of guitars equipped with hb's and single coils though, I think. So judge based on those standards.
