"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."
"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."
"There are many Religious as well as Jazz influences in my music which work together to create a unique and soulful sound. Bartolini has always been a huge part in helping to grow and develop that unique smooth sound that people have grown to know."
"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."
