"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."
