"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."
“I’ve been a fan of Bartolini pickups and preamps since day one. They give me the hump I need for my style of bass playing. Outstanding clarity, tone, and body is to be expected when rocking Bartolini everything! Gotta love Barts!“
"Since the first time Carlos Carabajal (a well known local luthier) installed a set of Bartolini Pickups in my Bass, I was very impressed with the wide spectrum of frequencies it can handle. Bartolini are amazing Pickups! I'm so glad to come across this brand!!
"My Bartolini Jazz 59CJD-LN1 pickup in the neck position provides a perfect blend of midrange growl and bottom end, along with the clearly audible high, crisp tones. It helps me create the Machine like Rhythm alongside my counterparts Bass Drum. Since I’ve started using the Bartolini Pickup it has opened doors again in creativity. Love it!!!"
"I’ve been using Bartolini pickups and preamps since 1998. Combined with my Roscoe basses, they faithfully reproduce the tone that has always been in my head. Bartolini pickups and preamps are an integral part of my tone. "
"I have been playing Bartolini Pickups for 11 years now! There are plenty of choices out there but I have stayed with Bartolini because they deliver the tone, cut and unparalleled excellence I have come to trust on stage or in the studio... no matter what style of music I'm playing!!!"
"I play rock, metal and modern music and the Bartolini tone complements me and my bass perfectly. My Bartolini bridge pickup on my Traben adds that little extra something you just can’t get with other brands. Couldn’t be more happy with trusting my sound to Bartolini."
"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 love the tonal range of my Bartolini pickups! I can go from a Jaco-esque Jazz bass sound, to full hi-fi slap tone, and anywhere in between, allowing me to use one bass for a wide variety of genres!"
"I've being using Bartolini pickups for two decades. These pickups help me become a better player - I can hear any harmonics - slap or finger style at any given moment. I love the way the voice of my Bartolini's hugs the Music."
"I’m a huge tone tweaker and no one tops Bartolini’s selection of outstanding bass pickup models or comes close to their level of experience in the industry! Regardless of what sound I’m looking for, Bartolini has just the right option for me."
"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!"
"Barts have always been my Big Guns! My Go to tone for most everything I have ever done. From Thunderous to Smooth and Growly to Ghostly I can always count on them to get the job done! Barts and Bass are made for each other!"
"The clarity and response of Bartolini is un matched. Mid range and higher frequency response is stellar while the bottom end is rock solid and powerful while staying completely clean and clear and highly manageable. As good as good gets!"
"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."
