Designed in collaboration with Seymour Duncan, our passive Dual Coil pickups were designed to provide a punchy and focused tone with a natural and smooth upper midrange. Compared to an active soapbar style pickup, the tone is warmer and more organic. Wired in parallel, these pickups offer a noise-free single coil sound with added body and weight yet come with the added flexibility of full single-coil operation providing the snap, warmth, and mid-range punch of classic single-coil Jazz Bass pickups.
Available in both single coil and humcancelling versions, these pickups are a a period correct reproduction of the originals. Warmth and mid-range punch combine to keep the pickups vintage integrity intact while also providing a clear and smooth top end. Note: Single Coil options are of opposite polarity and wind makeing them hum-cancelling when both pickups are on.
This P -pickup is designed around the original 50's design delivering a warm and woody tone, with a slightly softer treble response.

These Custom Humbuckers from Seymour Duncan offer a full, even, and rich sound with smooth highs, thick lows, and growling midrange. This even reponse makes it extremely versatile and great for all types of music and playing styles.
This single coil set will give you the authentic chime, sparkle, and feel that only vintage single coil pickups deliver. This set is wound to provide better overall balance between each pickup and increased versatility without losing the vintage vibe.
