So I ordered 4 pieces of neodymium magnets that size wise should fit pretty closely to the 4 ceramic magnets that is glued to each side of the pole pieces of the 2 split coil parts of my DeMarzio Model P, P pickup.
If I go through with this what should I expect, beside increased output, tone wise?
And since these neodymium magnets are supposed to be much stronger than the current original ceramic ones, would it be wiser to only use 2 of the 4 neodymium magnets that I bought, as in just placing 1 neodymium magnet right beneath the pole pieces of each of the P pickup's 2 coils, instead of using all 4 by placing 1 on each side of the pole pieces, as is currently the case with the 4 original ceramic ones?
Also if so, will that have influence on the pickup's tone as well?
I'm selling my Poller 3/4 (standard) size double bass. Really great bass for students or jazz/rockabilly. I gigged it professionally for several years before upgrading.
It's made in Romania in the early 90s. It has been my backup bass for the last few years but I can’t justify keeping two at the moment.
Makes a great bass for a student or an electric bass player taking up upright - I’ve gigged it and and it is very light so great for carrying around to gigs etc. I’ll include a soft case and realist pickup, and I can probably find a spare double bass stand if you would like one too.
Price drop to £895 and open to sensible offers and happy to reduce the price a bit if you don't want the pickup or other extras!
I'm currently located in North London for now but moving shortly to Kingston area and also am in Bucks and Sussex a lot so delivery around the south east is possible. You are welcome to come for a socially distanced play in the garden but serious buyers only please. Any questions let me know!
I'm gonna order a bass to a luthier but I don't know which pickup I have to choose.
I need just one passive pickup.
I like a round warm and powerful sound.
For examples : 'Ebin' of Sublime or 'I will survive' of Cake.
But I'm playing Metal, with no effect, so I need something powerful that will easily pass the mix.
Does someone have an idea ?
Thanks and have a great day !
