Which Jazz Bass pickups would you say have the greatest amount of nasty, snarling growl?
I don't know about some others, but the Duncan Basslines J's in my Lakland 55-63 are just about all I can handle in terms of snarly growl. I love it, but I have to use the passive tone to cut back a bit on things that don't require that tone.
I think I may go with Quarter-Pounders.
You might ask a dealer, or call Duncan directly, but I think you'll find that the Quarter Pounders are more traditional-sounding than the Basslines.
Quarter-Pounders ARE Basslines. Basslines is the name of the division of Seynour Duncan that makes bass pickups.
Right, but the models are different if I'm not mistaken.
They ARE all Basslines, yes.... I guess what I refer to is the model of my pickups: 67/60 and 70/74.
What I wonder is, are these somehow different from the old Quarter Pounders that we all used to install in our J basses in the '70s and '80s.
Laklands use the SJB-1 Vintage for Jazz-Bass; the standard model Basslines Jazz Bass pickup. THe SJB-3 Quarter-Pound for Jazz Bass is their nastiest, highest output model.
I was under the impression that the Quarter Pounders had more treble, or bite. I associate growl with midrange. I was thinking, and this is based on hearsay not my experience, Bart 9W4J.
Okay...Hell, you learn something new every day!
Mike, I found the graphic output and tone charts at SD pretty interesting. The Vintage J is the only one with accentuated mids.
