No other pickup can deliver the gigantic, luxuriant lows of Original Bart soapbars. They provide bottomless lows and low-mids, their dual coil construction eliminates the noise and muddiness that vast amounts of low-end can create. The Originals are full and warm for that vintage tone you've been craving, enhancing the natural voice of your bass. You'll never find lower tones produced with higher clarity!
Made for pro-level bass players, they are fully sealed and shielded making them sweat-proof, quiet if you touch them, and immune invisible noise from stage lights and studio power supplies. The cables are shielded too.
Available in balanced versions for neck (Bass, -B) and bridge (Treble, -T).
