Authentic P-Bass tone and character but with extended frequency response and articulation.

The Joe Barden P-Style Bass pickup is designed for the 4 string P-Bass and similarly styled basses. The sound is alive and present with punch and articulation that lifts your bass into a sound space that lets you stand out in the mix with authority and tone.

These P-Style Bass pickups were designed to maintain authentic P-Bass tone and character but with extended frequency response and articulation that characterizes all Joe Barden pickups. Despite their single coil pairing, and like all other Joe Barden pickups, the P-Style pickups exhibit quiet performance you would expect. P-Styles may be mixed in a P or PJ arrangement for guitars that are routed to accept standard P and J-Bass pickups. P-Style bass pickups are split pickup designs available for 4 string P-Bass models.

In a departure from dual blade pickup design, the JBE P-Styles utilize two single coil pickup pairs similar to a traditional P-Bass pickup. But the P-Style is significantly quieter than traditional P-Bass pickups. Every note is balanced and smooth across all strings. Intervals ring out with clarity and tone that make bass chording alive and expressive.

The wide frequency response of the pickup allows players to shape their tone from punchy and aggressive to soft and mellow. The P-Styles are also responsive to height adjustment enabling every player to adjust for the tone and response that is right for them.

JBE P-Style pickups are designed to fit standard 4-string P-Bass body routs without modification to the guitar.

Wiring diagrams and mounting hardware are included to facilitate installation.

  • Fit standard 4-string P-Bass body routs
  • Two single coil pickup pairs
  • Authentic P-Bass tone and character
  • Extended frequency response and articulation
  • Quieter than traditional P-Bass pickups
  • Balanced and smooth response across all strings

Comments about Joe Barden Pickups (Barden) P-Style 4 String Bass Pickup Set:

Wow! I have had my fair share of basses and pickups in all sorts of configurations. I tend to play funk, reggae, jazz, and afrobeat. I gig weekly and have been playing almost my entire life. No combination of pickups active or passive have been as beneficial as this single pickup has. Originally, I had bought a set of different pickups from another place and they sent the wrong item. I'm glad they did.
I am replacing a set of basslines (PJ), apparently, one at time. I've been using only this one because the basslines J pickup actually now brings the quality down. I would be completely satisfied with only this pickup.
Every note is heard. Play with less volume and still be heard in the mix. The lows are wonderful and the highs are where they need to be for any style for playing.
If you get this pickup, bring a screwdriver to rehearsal, as they are more sensitive to height than most.

P.S. Active pickups are evil.

Comments about Joe Barden Pickups (Barden) P-Style 4 String Bass Pickup Set:

Very good sounding pickup and easy to install. Better sounding than the Fender 50's stock pickup that came on the bass.
