The original Bartolini design gives you the timeless tone that started it all – full and warm for that vintage voice you’ve been craving, enhancing the natural voice of your bass. These split coil pickups are our deepest, darkest J-Bass set – ideal for ska, reggae, hip-hop. They have a blade core design, so you don’t have to worry about string alignment. 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.
