When you really want a P-Bass® voice but you already have a soapbar bass or you don’t want to route for traditional P pickups, you need P Soapbars. Used alone, in pairs, or with a J Soapbar, P Soapbars provide a flexible solution for great tone. Steel blade construction and tuned magnetic field ensures you don’t have to worry about pole alignment to get warm, full, perfectly balanced tone.
P Soapbars have thick, deep tone with huge bass response. Like our pro-level P-Bass pickups, these have internal shielding to block radiated noise from studio equipment and stage lighting. They are passive and will work with your current electronics in most basses but are also amazing when installed with an on-board preamp.
These split coil pickups are hum-cancelling and are sealed to be sweat-proof while also eliminating microphonics. Plus, because they don’t have exposed blades or poles, you don’t risk that horrible “dwink” noise of your string hitting magnetized metal. Like our J Soapbars, P Soapbars are truly pro-level pickups.
P Soapbars can be installed in either neck or bridge position but they are designed to pair nicely with J Soapbar bridge (-T, Treble) pickups.
