"The MK J series of pickups have been my go-tos for years. The voice balance between the lower and higher registers allow me to utilize the full range of my basses with ease while also retaining overall punch. They provide a clean (and quiet when idle!) canvas for me to paint on. "
"Bartolini offers the highest sound quality, providing the power necessary to achieve a classic and clean sound, with an excellent balance between treble, medium and bass thus allowing you to obtain versatility to interpret different musical styles"
"My music is filled with many rhythmic, harmonic and melodic influences. These three characteristics go hand in hand, providing an enormous ease of walking through different musical segments. "The warm, warm, mellow sound that Bartolini provides is a powerful weapon that helps to grow and develop a full-bodied ring."
"All of my basses have Bartolini pickups and electronics. I love the versatility and the tone of them. Music is my most important expression way and Barts make my “bass voice” loud and clear for the audience."
"Bartolini brings BEEF to the Bass. Years ago I had an Ibanez bass and the tone didn't work for what I was trying to do, so I went to a friend and he gave me some Bartolini Pickups and pre-amp to go in my bass. I took it to one of the techs in Houston and have been in love with them every since."
“I have known the Bartolini name and reputation for excellence forever. After adding Bartolini 69J1-L/LNs with active preamp to my custom 6-string fretless, I now fully understand and appreciate both the power and subtleties I can get out of my instrument.”
"The number one reason I use Bartolini is "TONE." I have always searched for the perfect tone to use in the studio and on stage. Bartolini electronics bring out the best tones in my Basses so I can just concentrate on playing.
During my very first recording session the engineer and I were trying to get the perfect funk tone out of my bass. It just was not possible. So he called a friend that had a Fender Jazz loaded with Bartolini pickups. We immediately found 'The Tone' and proceeded to record 6 tracks in about 3 hours time. The tracks were Fat with an extra crisp pop and sat just right in the mix."
"Bartolini pickups are simply the best. No other pickup captures the tones of my basses with such clarity and precision while also providing the variety of sounds I need to fit into any genre at any time."
"I’ve watched my father play with Barts for as long as I can remember. As an adult musician I can definitely see why he chose them. Barts have played a key role in helping me develop my sound and brand."
"Bartolini has their unique sound which complements your instrument and brings all necessary aspects: round and rich bass, natural mids and bright punchy treble frequences; string to string has the same power, all dynamic range is very sensitive, so you feel instrument much better. Also, Bart pups look so sexy!"
"My B-Axis Pickups give my P bass the tone and texture that I need for any style of music. These pickups provide all my tonal options ranging from classic vintage vibe, to more modern hi-fi sounds. A must have for your bass"
"With Barts… tone desired, tone achieved! Bartolini gives me the flexibility and sound precision required for any stage. From all Neck pickup to all Bridge pickup, and everything in between, distinguished character is always revealed."
"Deep, Fat, Clean, Crisp, Growl, Punch... can’t say enough to describe Bartolini’s sound. I love playing with Bartolini pickups because it sounds musical with lots of dynamics and details; truly defined what I need."
