Bass pickups are an absolutely essential component to any rig, and more than a little consideration is needed for selecting the perfect pair for your setup. From the smooth single-coil response of a Fender Jazz Bass to the throaty neodymium magnet roar of an Ernie Bass Music Man Bongo, the width and breadth of pickups produced is matched only by the spectrum of sounds they can create. One of the most effective ways to transform your sound without buying a completely new bass, netting that perfect new pair of pickups for your favorite instrument is just what the doctor ordered for a quick sonic makeover.
