Value 4 Money
Megalodon, 29.11.2020
So to be perfectly henest i didnt enjoy them as much as i wanted to, the sound is warm and not too compressed (for an active PU) After experimenting with them a bit i realised that a round and rich low end P bass wasnt the perfect fit for my mix, it didnt have the clarity and the punch on the low end to serve a modernt (djenty) metal mix specialy on fast picking etc.
Pros:
Great value for money especialy for a cheap bass, since you are going to change all of your bass wiring to ones with great quality.

Very easy installation with the emg solderless wiring.

100% Noiseless.

Tone pot is very responsive and gives you a good control over your tone, However couldnt get as bright as i wanted it but thats propably how a P Bass should sound.

Cons:
Poor in terms of bright and crisp on the low end, not sure if its a con or a P Bass thing but i wanted to mention it.

Foam robber not included, you either have to remove the one stuck on your old pickups (and it wont come out at a great shape) or either bought A Goldo Rubber foam seperatly.

No pickup springs included.

No battery included (get a good one)

EMG P's I was blown away
dnp41, 18.08.2017
So these are not a high profile pickup set (by that I mean that people are not discussing these at the forums), they are cheap and they come with all things needed (besides the battery).

My parts bass was seriously lacking mojo and tone, so I thought what the hell, let's see what some active pickups can do to the bass and I am more than impressed. Blown away actually. The sound is so full, so clear, so nice. These pickups don't make a small difference like you can expect when you change from SD SPB-1's to GZR pickups. These pickups make a huge difference.

the installation is super easy, granted that you have some room for a battery in the control cavity. I did'nt so I had to make room (yes I hacked out a battery sized hole in my control cavity). After that it took me less than 10 minutes to wire the bass.

I really like these and think they'd be great for recording.

Lovely sounding pickups
OldManPatsy, 01.07.2020
I bought this kit to replace the electronics on a cheap kit bass.

There were some issues with fitting everything into the existing routes cut into the bass. This is not the fault of the pickups though, just be aware that with the battery and everything, if you're switching from passive to active pickups, you're going to need some room.

The assembly of the electronics themselves were fairly easy, although the included instructions were more confusing than helpful. The internet came through though, and helped clear up any confusion!

They do sound brilliant - by far the best sounding bass i have now.

Incrementa la dinámica de un clásico
Juan RamonG, 24.03.2013
Si lo que buscas es un cambio notable en el sonido de un bajo eléctrico clásico, como es el caso del Fender Precision, o cualquiera de las marcas que imitan este modelo, se trata de una buena opción, sin necesidad de cambiar el instrumento.
La diferencia mas notable, es que al tratarse de un circuito de electrónica activa, incrementa bastante la dinámica del sonido, aunque para según que tipo de música, pueden ser o no las pastillas apropiadas, ya que este tipo de pastillas es idóneo para rock duro, pero se ha de tener en cuenta, que a la vez que incrementamos la densidad y la potencia, se pierde algo de limpieza y claridad necesarios en otro tipo de música.
