Suits 4-String Basses

Recommended Retail Price


The musical genre versatile Classic Bass voice upgrade for Ibanez, Cort, Groove Tools, Lakland and other basses with MK-1 shape pickups.

You already know if you sound better, you play better. When you need to do both, these pickups are the go-to upgrade. Classic Bass soapbars have a rich, deep voice with lots of high-end clarity and warmth. They have enhanced treble response and higher output than our Original bass pickups and offer bold, up-front clarity that adds dimension to your tone. We often hear from bass players after upgrading who say they had no idea their bass could sound so good.

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. Without sacrificing low-end, Classic Bass pickups let you turn up the tone without sounding brittle, sterile, or quacky. Plus, 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. There are different versions for neck (Bass, -B) and bridge (Treble, -T) so they balance well in your bass.
