Very powerful without the added noise!
Yamahatoms, 27.06.2021
On every other bass I used, there was a lot of finger noise when playing over the pickup but this is totally eliminated, possibly because I had a pro wire it in series so both coils are grounded, but this is also the best tone option for this pickup if you are using it in a stingray style bass. The tone is versatile and makes the guitar easier to play, the pickup does most of the sound control for you, rather than having to adjust your velocity on certain parts it handles everything.

Little beastie
Jeevan, 29.08.2015
This little this is a monster! Having only tried this in a passive bass and not with sterlings active EQ, i feel i have only half the picture although it's still surpassed my expectations of bass humbuckers. This pick up spans a fairly limited frequency range on it's own and communicates lows ok but gives the middle of the board a strong presence. With a decent amp and with a fresh set of roundwounds this pup will make you bass sing, or even scream under some distortion as it stood up well underneath the most warped signal i could dial in

ça grogne!
Cyril015, 11.06.2011
j'ai installé ce micro en remplacament du wilkinson d'origine de ma basse active Vintage EST96.....résultat bluffant.A l'origine j'avais des problemes de déséquilibre entre le MI et le SOL et mon micro étouffait les fréquences haut medium et aigu.
Grace a ce pavé MM ma basse est méconnaissable,pas besoin de dépensé 1000€ dans l'achat d'une Musicman Stingray.
j'obtiens des graves précis,ça ne bave pas et des bas méduim trés présent.Bref,ça grogne,le son est équilibré.Je joue principalement des lignes disco et funk sur une tête d'ampli Markbass et plus besoin de tourner les potards d'égalisation dans tous les sens pour trouver un son correct, tout a plat sur l'ampli et sur la basse.
Franchement je conseille ce micro a celui qui veut rebooster sa basse type Stingray(olp,vintage EST96,SX et même Fleabass).Sur un test a l'aveugle je défie quiconque de differencier une basse "entrée" de gamme upgradé avec ce micro d'un MM stingray a 100€.
J'ai d'ailleur souvent des remarques de personnes qui pensent que je joue sur une Stingray....
