Face it. Not everybody likes active pickups. These Phase II Passive Soapbars offer a passive alternative to battery-powered pickups. The tone is simple and organic, with the added warmth and punch you expect from a great passive pickup. Use it with passive volume and tone controls. Or, for maximum control, match these pickups with Seymour's STC-2p or STC-3p Tone Circuit, which offers either 2 or 3 bands of active EQ together with a proprietary slap contour switch.
This pickup is a direct replacement and generally requires no instrument modifications. The full-length dual blade accommodates maximum string spacings up to 2.70 in. (68.5mm) for 4-string basses.
