OVERVIEW

The Joe Barden J-Style 5 String Bass Pickup Set offers the same great Joe Barden tone, power, and response for the bass guitar as their ground breaking double-blade guitar pickups have done for 6 string guitars for the last 25 years. This set will take your bass sound to a whole new level.

The J-Style pickups were designed to maintain authentic J-Bass tone and character but with extended frequency response and articulation that characterizes all Joe Barden pickups. And, like all other Joe Barden pickups, the J-Style pickups exhibit quiet performance for live performance or recording.

Now, bass players are free to tailor their sound more precisely than was possible with stock pickups, and can select one or both pickups without fear of noise or hum often induced by traditional single coil bass pickups.

Neck and bridge position pickups differ in size to fit into the cavities of traditional J-Bass and similarly styled guitars without modification to the instrument.

J-Style pickups are available for both 4 and 5 string J-Bass styled bass guitars.

Maintains authentic J-Bass tone and character but with extended frequency response and articulation.

FEATURES
  • Dual blade design
  • Greater tone and power
  • Extended frequency response
  • Quieter performance

    Comments about JBE Pickups (Barden) J-Style 5 String Bass Pickup Set:

    This is a great set of pickups. I was looking to replace the Mexican stock pickups in my j-bass V and was drawn to these because of their positive reviews and blade style appearance. They are very quiet and deliver a much cleaner and crisper sound than other aftermarket pickups I have heard.

    The only reason why I don't give them 5 stars is due to the fact that the first set I received was defective. The bridge pickup was very quiet and only registered half of the ohms it should have. Although Musicians Friend was great in sending me out a replacement set it was a pain to have to remove the pickups and essentially have them installed twice. Moreover, although they do sound great they are pretty pricey!

    Joe Barden Pickups for 5 string Jazz Bass

    By ImTheBassPlayer

    from Midwest

    Comments about JBE Pickups (Barden) J-Style 5 String Bass Pickup Set:

    I really wasn't expecting much, I mean, after all, aren't most pickups sort of the same? Some wire wrapped around some iron cores? I have to say, I was TOTALLY blown away by the openess, punch, clarity and quietness of these pickups compared to the stock J Bass PUs. I never expected that, I bought these on the recomendation of a professional player / friend, and I thought he was a bit over the top about them, but I figured what the heck, I'll try them. I absolutely was shocked, I honestly didn't know there could be that much difference between pickups (especially considering that the stock Fender J bass pickups are generallly considered to be preety darn good).So, if you like things very clear, punchy, quiet, clear (did I already say clear???), these are for you. Of course, this is a personal preference, but if you are looking for that muddy EB3 sound, these are definately not for you...
