Overview

Improved soapbar tone with noise-free performance.

The Joe Barden JBE Soapbar Pickup Set not only offers authentic soapbar tone but also the presence, musicality and noise-free performance that are characteristic of all JBE pickups.

Like any good soapbar pickup, the tone of JBE's Soapbars fall in the sonic landscape between the fullness of a humbucker and the chimey tones of single coils but with something more. The bridge pickup is appropriately "nasty" while the neck pickup is warm and musical with presence and tone that make these pickups uniquely "JBE-esque."

The bridge pickup has the "attitude" players expect from a soapbar pickup, taking guitar solos to greater heights. The neck pickup is wonderfully warm, clear and present, never dull or lifeless. With both switched 'on' you get a wonderfully hollow/woody sound that seems to belie the tonal character of each pickup separately.

Equally impressive is that the noise and hum of traditional soapbars are totally eliminated in the JBE design, making them perfect for recording and live performance.

JBE Soapbars are designed to fit body routes of any guitar that conforms to the Gibson soapbar/P90 specification.
