A quality product.

Panagiotis B., 20.05.2014
Seymour Duncan can be proud enough for putting their brand name on this product, this pup sounds as good as one would expect.
It is anything but weak, although a passive pickup, in fact it is almost loud. It is quite balanced all throughout the frequency spectrum, with bold low-mids and the extreme lows "tamed" just enough so it doesn't sound "boomy". Although it is well articulated, it's overall character is rather dark, offering more of a "body" rather than the high end attack that you may hear from it's EMG equivalent.
Given that, it sounds really fat with an overdriven sound.
All around, while it is not recommended for an ultra-modern, sparkly-clean tone (think Korn's bass tone), I wound definitely recommend this pickup as an upgrade to any stock pickup on your bass.
Summing-up, you get a full, bold body of tone, with a "classic", dark character, yet quite defined so it won't go anything near to muddy.
It's price-tag and tone qualities may not appeal to the beginner player, but anyone over that level, with some experience over the matter of bass guitar sound, would easily appreciate this product.

Test SEYMOUR DUNCAN SSB-4N Test et SSB-4B

Thomas022, 31.05.2011
double Micros SSB-4N&B posés sur Epiphone Goth Thunderbird

Je les ai fait poser par un luthier. Il m'a dit que ça avait été assez galère mais c'est sans doute dû à la basse. Je ne pense dont pas qu'il y ait le moindre problème de fabrication avec ces micros.

Le son :
Je le trouve à mi-chemin entre Jazz et Precision, avec une plus grosse tendance sur la Precision. Le son est rond et les graves profonds mais avec une puissance de micros jazz. Peu d'aigus mais néanmoins une bonne chaleur. Le son ronfle bien. Je les utiliserai plutot pour un rock indus ou même electro que pour un son plus agressif. Même si le son ronfle, je les trouve un peu mous pour du jazz mais à chacun de voir ce qu'il veut.
