good ceramic soapbar
09.09.2014
I've put it on one of my early builds... the sound is what I expected from a commercial ceramic soapbar. Good output, not noisy, pretty easy to fit and wire to pots, looks ok... it could be a good deal. Works well in passive.

Die Soundaufbesserung
Michael794, 03.11.2009
aus diversen Foren bin ich auf diese Pickups gestossen und habe sie als Replacement für die originalen Pickups in meinem Epiphone Thunderbird Bass verwendet. Da die Pickups eine andere Impedanz als die originalen Epiphone Pickups hatten musste ich auch die Potis tauschen.

Als alles soweit eingebaut war allerdings noch keine Saiten am Bass waren habe ich mal gegent die Pickups geklopft um zu testen ob am Bassverstärker etwas herauskommt. Da kam nichts! Also Schaltung kontrolliert und keinen Fehler gefunden. Als ich dann Saiten aufgezogen hatte, war dieser fantastische, transparente Sound da. Und die Lehre aus dem fehlgeschlagenen Klopfversuch: Diese Dinger sind Nebengeräuschfrei. Das Problem von Scheinwerfer Einstreuungen, Brummen von Computermonitoren in der Nähe ist Vergangenheit.

Zu den Klangeigenschaften der Pickups kann ich sagen, dass die Pickups äusserst neutral sind und ein ausgewogenes Frequenzspektrum produzieren. Im Bassbereich kommt eine schöne Briese aus der Anlage und eigentlich der gesamte restliche Frequenzbereich ist als brilliant zu bezeichnen.

Der Output ist passiv bedingt leiser als bei aktiven Pickups, mir geht da aber nichts ab.

Da die Pickups einfach gut klingen und den Sound nicht wirklich verfälschen, kann man mit der Klangregelung am Bassverstärker sehr gut arbeiten. Auch ein Bassbauer, bei dem ich meinen Bass zuletzt für eine kleine Reperatur hatte, war von den Duncans beeindruckt. Der Preis geht total in Ordnung, denn alternativ beschränkt sich die Auswahl in dieser Soundliga auf EMG, Bartolini und deren Freunde, die alle wesentlich teurer sind.

Duncan Duncan
Pickles Prodz, 02.08.2020
Micro acheté pour remplacer les micros (ici version bridge) d'origine d'une basse Steinberger XT2 que je trouvais trop nasillards (trop médiums) à mon goût !

Mission accomplie, ces micros céramiques passifs respectent la nature de l'instrument, avec un volume de sortie bien présent, des graves, des médiums et des aigus bien équilibrés.

Passage chez mon luthier pour adapter (agrandir) les cavités de la XT2.

Pleinement satisfait de cet achat !
