single coil 5 string jazz-type bass pickups
Five string single coil pickups in the same style as the NJ4. Featuring Alnico V magnets and the same winding pattern as the four, these are very fat sounding with plenty of growl and bark. Includes closed black covers.
This pickup is available with an alternative “70’s wind” featuring enamel wire and have less winds than the 60’s version. This results in a clearer more open sound with less midrange warmth that is more reminiscent of the Marcus Miller type of tone.
*now available with Alnico III (A3) Magnets
Alnico III magnets differ from Alnico V in that they are warmer with a softer character. Think of them like a 60’s J style sound taken even further down the warm and fat path. Alnico V by contrast is brighter, cleaner and punchier, and will have a more wiry, stringy character. As another example, we’d recommend A3 for fretless or a fat 60’s Jaco type thing and A5 is great for a modern slap type thing or an R and B sound.
