SSB-5 gives better sound

Brian M., 20.05.2013
I bought a 5-string bass for a mini project I was doing. The guitar played beautifully but the sound was muddy, weak and suffered from poor ground buzzing.
Having researched the options I opted for the SSB-5 pickups. They appeared to offer the best in terms of quality, fit and economy and I wasn't disappointed.
In terms of mechanical fit, they were almost a 1:1 drop in replacement. The SSB-5 box came with everything including a suggested 3-control wiring diagram. However, since my guitar was fitted with 4-controls (2-Vol, 2-Tone) I would have liked an option for this. In the end I ignored the Seymore Duncan wiring diagram and wired the guitar my own way.
The end result is an excellent sounding guitar with a huge range of tones available. While not in the active PU league, the SSB-5s have transformed my guitarinto a real playable and good sounding unit, far better then what I was getting with the stock PU's that came with the guitar.

Highly recommended.

These are great pickups, they provide the bottom that was missing from my bass and the sound quality is close to other famous brands.
Rear pickup provide nice jaco sound, and neck pickup is ok with enough clarity.
Only con i can find is that the slap sound is not good on the rear pickup. Balance knob in middle position equals killer slap sound, and neck pickup is very good for slap but if i roll back to the bridge pickup there isnt enough snap or bottom.
I recommend this pickups because of their price quality ratio.
