"Crumby squirer pickups to seymour duncans"
Overall: I have a second hand squier p-bass I bought for 70 quid.the pickups it came with were pretty rubbish , so after a couple of years I decided to change them.I read a lot of reviews and looked at a lot of difrent pickucks , and found it all a bit arbitrary reading about another persons interpretation of sound. , and wouldnt rely on any ones opinion who used words like "awsome" anyway. If your search for some sound clips thats helpfull.these pickups cost me 60 quid , neary as much as the bass itself.Im very happy with them , the quelity of the sound is far superior , they seem to add the missing layers of tone and theres no hum or buzz , basically making the guitar not sound crap.chords sound nice , turning up the treble for a twangy funk stlye sounds nice too. they sound like a bass of a record. I had read they were a lot loader and suited to rock so was worried they might have a distorted effect wich i would find undesirable but they didnt.they dont come with springs , just some wierd little plastic tubes wich I can find no use for.they are much better than the made in china squier pickups , just much cleaner and professional sounding with a chunkyer build quility.I would advise them to anybody wanting to vastly improve a squier .I think there good. I think pyramids and space travel are "awsome" these are just pickups.hope that helps some one.
Style of Music: reggae , funk , jazz , hungarian harpsicord medlys , abstract mouse chase soundtracks , the music of my deranged mind.

"Very high quality pickups."
Sound: This pickup has a full and fat sound. My fender precision standard improved greatly from it. It has become an integral part of my "rhythm bass" sound (I'm looking to switch over to a quarter pound jazz and musicman replacement for my Fernandes Tremor, my "lead bass"). Quality: Seymour Duncan... need I say moire? THe man is known for making great pickups. Value: Worth ever penny. The Wow Factor: Very good pickup. Again, it's part of my sound. The sounds is good for most of what I do. I play some free form jazz that my fernandes is better suited to, but that's due to bass type, not the pickups. Overall: I don't need to change pickups in my precision ever again (in all likelyhood).
Style of Music: Alternaive, Jazz, Metal, and Rock

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
