BLUE HUMBUCKER SET
The core component of an electric bass guitar are the magnetic pickups. They detect the vibrations of the strings which are amplified through speakers – much like how a microphone works. Therefore, the quality and tendency of the pickups greatly influence the tone and characteristics of the sound. The big, pole-piece style Humbucker Pickup Sets have been redesigned to be a newly developed soap bar style Humbucker Pickup. This unique Humbucker style produces strong outputs with punchy and solid mid tones.
