Upgrade your bass tone with these high-quality, environmentally friendly pickups.
The new Alumitone Bass Bars were designed by Jeff Lace as an upgrade to bass guitars that use conventional size soap-bar pickups.
This is the Bass Bar 4.0, designed for a 5-string bass.
All Bass Bar Alumitone pickups feature zero noise, ultra-wide frequency response and lightweight design. A reduction of up to two pounds of weight can be achieved by replacing conventional-style pickups with this new technology without any modification to the guitar itself.
These "current driven" pickups are designed for passive installation. However, due to their low resistance, they will not only work with existing preamp technology but will enhance the sonic range of it, as well.
Alumitone Bass Bar technology uses patented and patent pending technology only available thru Lace Music Products.
Formally introduced for Earth Day, the revolutionary Alumitone family of pickups use 95% less copper wire then standard pickup designs. By reducing the need for copper it saves valuable resources, reduces open-pit mining, and reduces the need for the energy consuming process of converting copper ore to fine wire.
This 4.0" model is for a 5-string bass. Use the Bass Bar 3.5" for a 4-string or the Bass Bar 4.5" for a 6-string bass.
Call the vet, 'cause these pups are sick.

Comments about Lace Alumitone Bass Bar 4.0 5-String:
I have a Spectorcore 5 string bass which is a semi hollow bass with a active Piezo bridge pickup, which is awesome, and a passive EMG bar pickup. I was never happy with the EMG, not enough highs, it wasn't as load as the Piezo and not enough growl for me. Maybe if it is used active or on a solid body it would be better, anyway when I came across this pickup and read what it does, especially acting like an active pickup I thought I'd give it a try. I put it in and it blew me away. It is louder, brighter and it growls. I love this pickup it's like I just got a whole new bass, thanks Lace.
