Voiced very similar to our Original Dual Coil bass pickups, our Split-coil Reverse P design provides extended reach and a wider sensing area, allowing for a narrower pickup to work with wider-spaced strings. Original Split pickups preserve the full-bodied low end of our Original series and adding even more articulation, a simple setup, and high value.
Original Splits provide you with deep lows and low-mids along with nice treble complexity for manageable growl. The coils are fully shielded and sealed so they are sweat-proof and immune from invisible noise stage and studio equipment. The cables are shielded too.
Available in balanced versions for neck (Bass, -B) and bridge (Treble, -T). The bridge pickup has a higher output than the neck pickup, so it is great for cutting through the mix when needed.
