What do you guys consider the best kind of pickup ?
Me neither. Also, the term "soapbars" denotes only the shape of the covers and not the actual windings.
And this should've been posted in "pickups" in the first place.
Yeah.. i noticed the ' pickup ' section after i posted it here.. sorry about that..
C'mon fellers, ease up ...AllodoX's posts are in single digits.
Let's not scare `im off. I'm currently a nut for piezos (Fishman).
Future "evil" plans include a RioGrande Powerbucker, an old
single coil P-bass type, a DiMarzio X2NB, and the F.A.A.S.
piezo system .
Martini girls are my favorite (anytime,anyplace,anywhere) ........Oh ,Hang on, I think I've got the wrong end of the stick here...................
Wasn't trying to give 'em a hard time. I don't have a favorite kind of pickup. I like Bartolini "brand" pickups but as far as number of coils, shape, etc. ... no preference.
Rickenbacker's TOASTER and HORSESHOE... Wow! Try them!
I like humbuckers because they have a nice full sound, and with today's technology and strings, don't sound muddy like years ago. I like the crisp top end of single coils, but if there's the slightest bit of hum; they are garbage can bound. Also, using
the Precision, Jack Casady and Musicman as examples, I like just one pickup on a bass. Two are more versatile, yes, but one pup seems to make me focus more on my playing rather than small adjustments in tone.
Apologies Brad-dude...I had just woke up when I posted
that. All was well...I hadn't had my recommended daily
allowance of run-ins with generic morons, power-mad
wankers, and inept-i-tuders....
ahm reddy NOW
"Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffin' glue"
I currently have an MEC J-bass pickup and an MEC humbucker...both are incredible!!
My favorite kind of pickup is a Ford.
Sorry. I would have to go along with the Bartolini comment. Each style/ design has its place, and my basses have different combinations.
I like split coil humbuckers, like on a P Bass, fat sound. Although I also like the clarity of single coils. It just depends on the situation.
Who you callin' a mo-ron?
Nooo, no, no, no....awwwww crap . I'm talkin' `bout
my "day" job...'Yes non-technical "technical lead" boss-
type person, the sky IS indeed falling. Shall we drop
everything and call a meeting till we're all warm & fuzzy?'
I always thought it'd be a cool challenge to employ Bart's
six string, P-bass type in some sorta' custom monstrosity.
Do they even make those anymore?
No problem, mo'
George Furlanetto of F bass used to make a 6 string P type for his sixes with matching wooden cases. Sweet pickup. Don't know if Bill currently makes one but he probably would...if you don't mind waiting a year or so
My favs are a toss up between EMG hummers and Single Coil J-styles. I like the sound out of both of them a lot.
But I don't mind naything else.
:said in sarcastic tone: Naw, I hate P-style. It just sucks.
The best pick up style is the soapbars , I'll stick them
on anything. Especially the barts and ken-smiths.
they are very able to produce a number of tones and have a response that you can't get with traditional pickups.
Aren't Soapbars = Humbuckers basically? and where are the P Bass pickups and Lightwave and so forth
