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.
