I will do, as soon as I know anything! They're brand new to the market, and I took a chance, I actually got the first stock the store(in the US, local to Joe Barden) had.

I went for them, because of how great their Jazz pickups are, so I'm hoping they'll be like them.

Their J's are hot, and with a pile of clarity, truly faintastic pickups, for what its worth.

They arrived yestersay, and yeah, they won't be the last, power, tone, clarity, awesome.

Also, came with propper pickup foam, in two thicknesses, the correct bass tone cap, a treble bleed cap for the vol control(a godsend, truly), and grommets.

Can't remember offhand, but they're wrote down on the wiring diagram, I'll check later.

Can you also post the specs, Bill? Specifically, the output in voltage?

You've definitely peaked my curiosity! Wink

Crud.


I should have took measurements before I whipped out the soldering iron......


I'll see what I can do, but I can tell you now, they are *LOUD* one of the loudest pickups I've come across, loud, but clear.

Loud is all you need to make tubes break up. Cool

True that, but its nice to have a comparison.

The caps are a 120pf for the treble bleed, and .05uf for the bass tone, both orange drops.

Seriously, I'm going to buy a stack of those 120pfs, greatest mod ever.

I've never heard about a treble bleed before. Can you tell me more about it?

Its just a small capacitor, the goes on the hot and middle lugs of the volume pot.

What it does, is keep your tone bright as you roll off volume, rather than muddy it up, which is what normally happens.

I think I might give those a shot when I rewire my next stereo bass.
