What do Darkstar pickups sound like?

  1. I am buying a Lakland Decade with Darkstar pickups in it. I was wondering if anyone can give me an idea of what they sound like. What styles do they sound better at i.e. rock, funk, etc.

    If I'm not mistaken, the picture shows the new ChiSonic pickups, but the sound samples are still from the older Decades with the Darkstars.

    Beat me to it, Thump Jr...

    Big sound, very even with crisp bright highs and quick attack, the bottom is massive but not muddy ... well I say more HERE

    :smug: ... I was into Dark Stars long before I met Fred, this is DS bass #4 for me, I guess you could say I dig them!

  5. They kind of sound like an active PJ, to me at least.

  6. Thanks everyone. Those sound links to the Lakland site really help.
