    I bit the bullet and bought these(65$) off ebay, couldnt resist cheap price. Has anyone ever used these on a pbass? Does the promise of fantastic punch and deep low end ring true?:meh:

    Hi I have a SX P bass & I have had SX pickups , MIJ Fender pickups , SD active pickups ( cant rember the model had 3 little switchs . & the SD 1/4 pounders.
    The 1/4 pounders are the best by far.
    My son Stingray knock off bass we put in SD 1/4 pounders in & they are great.
    You wount be sorry

    I've been using the Quarter Pounder in my old P bass for about 10 years now. I like it better than the stock pickup and a DiMarzio I tried. Better lows, thicker mids and still plenty of highs. It works good for all styles of music. Particularly nice with Thomastic flatwounds.

    I had one in a cheap Ibanez P bass I used to own and it really breathed new life into that bass. The output was noticeably higher than the active EMG's I had in my Jazz bass at the time.
     
  5. Yes... have had them in three basses, they were great in all of them.

    I have Quarter Pounders in my Fender Aerodyne, and I am very happy with the SPB-3. "Strong output" is understating what it does...
