It does "that" 50's P sound.
Guiri MacGringo Del Colorado, 10.04.2020
These seem to replicate 51/54 Fender pickups well. Punchy, big sound but a bit more focussed sounding than the, later, Split P design. I hadn't expected there to be so much detail in the notes when using roudwound strings (my experience with a 54 P bass had flats on it.... String zing, colourful high mids, growly low mids, tight focussed bass. A bit like a slightly over wound J pickup, with a lot more punch and thicker sound, but a lot of clarity.
Whith flatwounds this pickup punches out solid, midrange-heavy, tones.
(I use DR rounds and tried Rotes and TI flats... the it's will live on this bass for a while... however I think Fenders may do it more justice...)
Great Pickup
Love it!

Really good full range sound, very 50's, but with more range,I put it on a self build, was going to put a jazz pup on the bridge as well but didn't need to, on its own this did the job,very pleased.

The growl from the depths of the first Precision Bass
GioG, 22.04.2018
Everything started with my preference for the telecaster guitar, design, simplicity and sound. and then discovered the Harley Benton PB-50 SB Vintage Series bass.
Ordered and turned into a trinket with just a few hand movements: body candy apple red, whipping board yellowed white and top plate accordingly honed. the playability 1A, the sound needed some eq tutoring that he sounded.
now come on the seymour duncan scpb-1.
Thomann called, if the pickup was just a nice part or a real enrichment. Answer: he makes a difference.
a few days later I received the pickup.
the exchange was a bit trickier than expected, as the milled out bass was precisely tailored to the wilkinson pu and the seymour duncan pu is a bit richer. after expanding a cutout and, as already mentioned in some comments, to install foam of packing of scpb-1 as underlay under the pu it could start.

at the soundcheck I did not work professionally, record track with wilkinson, then also with seymour duncan, then compare.
I started to play the bass and did not want to stop. have at the amplifier (yorkville B200, a miracle cube) the low centers at 15 o'clock and the heights at 9 o'clock.
pb-50 remains pb-50. the statement of the thomann employee, it makes a difference, is very correct.
fuller, deeper, growler, rounder - better in every way. I played a sound and left it standing, as it sounded so cool. So you can play sparingly - that sounds great.
with some foam at the brigde pushed under the strings, one has the flatwound sound without string changes. purists of course say that's not true. clear. but 80% of the flatwound effect is there. for free.

the investment in a good pickup was more than worth it.

for those who want to play a no frills, strong, rather central vintage bass, unconditional purchase recommendation.

to the installation: I made the enlargement of the cutout on the side hidden by the pickguard (direction neck), because I, as a kitchen table - handyman, this of course never as clean as a machine milled cut.

for all vintage colors freaks: candy apple red RAL 3003, surf green RAL 6027, lake placid blue RAL 5007.

Pastillas Recomendables
Carlos401, 01.04.2013
Estas pastillas son una Replica de los primeros P-Style Bass of the 50´s

Pastillas muy recomendables para su precio, perfectas country, pop, surf, blues, and classic rock.
Si lo que buscas es ese Sonido early-'50s del Tele-Bass estas pastillas son una opción muy recomendable, por el precio que tiene creo que son una buena opción a tener en cuenta.

Usa los mismos componentes que el original para darle el mismo aspecto, no llevan logo y vienen con cable.

En general me han ofrecido justo lo que estaba esperando, ni más ni menos, por lo que creo que les una compra que no decepciona.
