    hey everyone, I just recorded some quick soundsamples of Seymour Duncan Spb-3 Quarter Pound for Pbass pickup.
    I'm running a matt freeman squier pbass with the Spb-3's into Line 6 Podfarm via a Line 6 Pod UX1. Recorded with Riffworks T4.
    All these samples are DI. The strings are about 2.5/3-week-old D'addario Chrome's 45-100.

    Enjoy :bassist: 1 riff on the lower strings, 1 riff on the higher strings for each number.


    1)Tone 100%, finger
    2)Tone 50%, finger
    3)Tone 0%, finger
    4)Tone 100%, pick
    5)Tone 50%, pick
    6)Tone 0%, pick
    7)Tone 100%, Slap/pop
    8)Tone 50%, Slap/pop
    9)Tone 0%, Slap/pop

    I have had these pickups in my bass since last year mid August... Still unsure if i prefer them to the originals, but to each their own.
  2. Thanks for posting these. I bought a Squier Dirnt for my son and was wondering about the 1/4lb, but was surprised and pleased with the stock. I think I'll keep it standard and say thanks again for illuminating.

    I'm thinking it sounds exactly like an SPB-3 in a Precision ;)
