Upgrade pickups for your Fender or similar bass with a P-Bass pickup near the neck and a J-Bass pickup near the bridge. This configuration allows you to have the two very different voices in one instrument. We embrace the differences and don’t try to balance the output, because it would mean sacrifices for both voices. So yes, get P or J without fear of compromise!
All models feature fully encapsulated coils to protect against the rigors of professional bass players - sweat, microphonic noise, and feedback.
All Bartolini P-Bass and J-Bass pickups are passive designs that can be used with passive controls or with an on-board preamp for an active instrument.
As a pro-level artist, you can fine tune your voice in your PJ-Bass. We make pickups with a number of different voices. See our sets below. Or you can do a quick search if you already know what you want.
