Aguilar Announces "Soapbar"-Shape Bass Pickups Posted by Harmony Central News on Jan 13, 2013 10:47:25 AM
New York, NY — Aguilar, the leading edge USA manufacturer of high quality bass pickups, is pleased to announce the expansion of their pickup line with two series of soapbar bass pickups. These pickups will be available in a variety of 4, 5 and 6-string standard soapbar sizes.
The first of these, the Super Singles™, give you massive single coil sound in a soapbar size. Players can expect all the articulation and nuance of a single coil pickup combined with great sustain and harmonic development. These pickups will give you excellent string-to-string response and even tone in all registers. The DCB™ pickups use dual ceramic bar magnets that offer a dynamic and responsive attack that works for all playing styles. These pickups offer well-developed overtones and singing sustain in the body and decay of the notes. The DCB pickups sound great installed in a passive bass or in conjunction with an onboard preamp. Like all Aguilar pickups, the Super Singles and DCB’s are wound in Aguilar’s NYC factory. They will be available starting early March 2013. The street prices for both pickups are TBA.
Since their release in 2010, Aguilar pickups have become the new standard for exceptional bass guitar pickups. Providing the rich, musical tone that Aguilar gear is known for, Aguilar pickups are used by top luthiers and bass players the world over. Whether you are looking for period-correct vintage flavors or the most modern tones; Aguilar has the pickup for your bass.
Your bass has a voice, let it be heard.
Aguilar pickups are used by many famous bass players including Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, NIN, and many others), Anthony Wellington (Victor Wooten), Jeph Howard (The Used), and Nathan Thomas (Scotty McCreery). For more information, please visit: www.aguilaramp.com.
