This bass pickup has a very gentle sound. It has very little of that annoying high frequency fretboard fizz that you usually get with piezzo pickups. But it removes that without removing that lovely, woody midrange buzz that's so characteristic of double basses.

It's very well built and it has a very simple and clever way to attach the plug connector to the tailpiece. The cable is very soft and comes with two included black rubberbands to coil up slack.

It was abit of a project to install it, since you have to slack all the strings. And even remove the G string alltogether to fit the plug connector, the string goes through a kind of a loop on the backside of the tailpiece. The pickup also raises one of the bridge feet about 1mm. This changes the angle against the body, and at least in my case, the bridge needs to be trimmed. This is probably best done sanding by putting something of similar thickness to the pickup under a sanding paper on the bass.

It's very importat that there are no gaps between the pickup and the bridge/body, your bass wont sound as good and you'll risk getting some very protruding buzz..

But yeah, a very good buy!

Owen M., 06.06.2014
All in all this is the best pickup I've owned (and I've owned a lot). On my bass it's slower to feedback, can get a great bouncy feeling low end elegantly stays out of the way. If you want a smooth high end definition then thats tough, it doesn't have a lot of cut and trying to get it with EQ on a bass amp reveals some wonky resonances (even with the radial piezo pre). DI'd on a recording it's ok, smooth and good lows and low mids but the subs are not too present and theres not much hope of eq-ing in higher midrange if you are after an NHOP style tone. I like how you can be sure there is the correct pressure (something that is left to chance when you use a bridge wing style pickup) but it needs a luthier to fit properly and your bridge will have to be permanently altered. It alters the acoustic sound a little but not enough that it causes trouble for orchestral stuff if that is not your main thing, and when the bass is just walking or holding down the low end at a gig it fits into a mix nicely. Long term I'll probably get a new bridge and a Wilson or Full Circle but I'm certainly getting less hassle from this compared to other pickups in the meantime.
