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.

Fantastic tone
ISBM, 10.10.2017
I love these pickups. I have them fitted in a kit-built Ibanez style bass guitar and they are perfect.

The sound is beautiful - slapped, finger picked or using a pick. Great clarity at all points of the fretboard and perfect sustain. I have used a variety of amps at rehearsal spaces as well as my own Peavey 500W and I am consistently pleased with the performance. These will almost certainly be used in any further 5 string ventures and I will probably try the 4 string set at some point too. These really have become my favourite pickups, taking the crown from an active set I have on my main 4 string!

I highly recommend them and I will probably end up with another set in the near future.

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.

A really nive set to upgrade a bass!
marco_elwray, 14.12.2017
I needed to upgrade my old Ibanez SR405 from '99, But I didn't want to spend a lot of money in Aguilar, Delano or Nordstrand pickups. The price is really good.

One star less for the sound : it sounds really really nice, this is really neutral pickups, not warm, not cold. Precision is very nice.

Quality is outstanding, it's Seymour Duncan.

Go for it to upgrade a old bass or any bass where you need a neutral sound.
