About This Listing

Rich, deep, hum-free voice with high-end clarity and warmth for your J Bass®.

Sold as a SET (Bridge & Neck pickups)

Classic J Bass® pickups give you enhanced treble response and narrower apertures for incisive attack and focused sound without harshness. This added treble definition vastly increases the tonal range available in active or passive instruments. When you dig in, they are responsive and growly. When you pull back, they are clear and sweet. And they’ll take any slapping and popping you want to give them. The Classic Bass series is popular with progressive, jazz, gospel, and metal musicians where articulation is critical. They are sweat-proof and won’t crackle and thud when you touch them or hit them with the strings.

If you play a wide variety of music, you know you need some pro-level pickups, but you don’t want to do a big upgrade project, Classic Bass pickups are a great choice. They are passive and will work with your current electronics in most basses. These dual inline-coil pickups are hum-cancelling even soloing the neck or bridge pickup, so they are well suited for studio or stage.

Available in balanced bridge and neck versions.

Below are some general impressions and anecdotal thoughts gathered over the years about Bartolini's Classic Bass Series. Some are our own and some are from customers.
  • Most players will hear these pickups as giving their bass a fuller tone, typically a very significant improvement over stock pickups.
  • More open top end, without sacrificing the lows and low mid warmth that Bartolini’s are known for.
  • Often sited as one of the best values in a Jazz Bass® replacement pickup
  • Bartolini’s corners are nice and rounded over, so if you play with your thumb hooked on the top corner, these will probably feel a bit better than a traditional pickup shell (referring mostly to Jazz® and Precision® Basses.
  • Commonly characterized as Bartolini’s best ‘balanced’ winding style
