No nonsense bass pickup

The Headway Band provides a simple and clean way to pick up the sound from my bass when it needs a small boost. It's so unobtrusive that I leave it in place most of the time.

It probably isn't as susceptible to feedback as mic-based systems but the double bass body is a natural sound amplifier. As volume levels push up, it is a good idea not to stand too close to any speakers (including those from other musicians) and to put something in the f holes to take the edge off feedback propagation. Even something as inelegant as a pair of old socks allows significantly more volume.

While you can run straight to an amp, I find that I get a better tone running through a preamp, where I can emphasise lower frequences and reduce the higher ones.

Overall, I don't think it quite lives up to the promises of the advertising blurb but it has still been an excellent solution for situations where I need to plug in.

Ein idealer Pickup für Musiker, die mehrere Instrumente wechselweise ausrüsten wollen.

Zunächst vielen Dank an THOMANN für die unglaublich schnelle Belieferung!

Ich habe THE BAND Doublebass Pickup sofort an zwei Instrumenten getestet: Beides Meisterinstrumente von Emanuel Wilfer Möhrendorf, das eine ein 4/4 4-Saiter-Solobaß, das andere ein 4/4 5-Saiter Orchesterbaß. Beide Instrumente haben 24 cm hohe Zargen und gewölbte Decken und Böden und sind somit die derzeit dicksten "Brummer". THE BAND ist lang genug, um für diese dicken Instrumente auszureichen!

Die Montage des Pickups ist denkbar einfach: Man legt das Instrument auf die Zarge und führt das Band etwa mittig zwischen Griffbrett-Ende und Steg um das Instrument. Ein Klettband am Ende hält die Position des Bandes an der Rüchseite des Instrumentes fest, sie wird durch ein zweites kleines Klettband fixiert. Das Tonkabel wird an dieser Position eingesteckt - fertig.

Da der Pickup in gefaltetem Zustand geliefert wird, liegt er zunächst an den Faltstellen nicht eng an, was sich aber bei Erwärmung durch die Raumtemperatur gibt und ohnhin nicht bedeutsam ist, da nur die vorn mittig liegenden Sensoren Kontakt haben müssen.

Die Tonwiedergabe ist bei beiden Instrumenten hervorragend, wobei die Charakteristik von Instrument und Besaitung voll erhalten bleibt. Auch das Subkontra-C des 5-Saiters kommt sehr gut heraus. Ich habe zum Test einen Gallien Krueger MB 1505-112 III verwendet und alle Equalizer in Stellung "0" belassen: fabelhafte Wiedergabe ohne Kratzgeräusche des Bogens und ohne Überbetonung der hohen Frequenzen, jedoch mit Erhalt der dem Instrument eigenen Charakteristik im Frequenzgang.

Wer von mehreren Instrumenten hin und wieder eines mit Amp verwenden will, hat mit diesem Pickup die ideale Lösung gefunden. Nur eines muß er akzeptieren: Man kann den Pickup sehen. Doch Technik, wenn sie sauber ausgeführt wird, darf man dann auch sehen.
