Based on our legendary Original series J-Bass pickups with dual-inline, split coils, these pickups cancel hum while providing that full and warm vintage tone you’ve been craving, enhancing the natural voice of your bass. Original Barts bring out your voice, low and clear.
In the early ‘70s, Bill Bartolini leveraged his deep knowledge of acoustics to create pickups that produce the most natural, musical voice from the instrument. He added shielding to block radio signals and noise. He developed a method of sealing, isolating, and stabilizing the coils so they could be encapsulated in epoxy to eliminate “microphonics” – the nasty noise you get when you touch typical pickups.
Candybar shapes were made for refined Jazz bass builders who wanted to avoid the routing hassles and busy look of standard J-Bass pickups. Available in versions for neck (Bass, -B) and bridge (Treble, -T).
