Dimarzio DP249 Area J Set - Jazz Bass
Been waiting for a bass pickup that sounds like a vintage J Bass®pickup and cancels hum? Your wait is over. Bass pickups are usually described with aggressive terms such as amazing punch and thundering lows, but that’s not the sound of vintage J Bass® pickups. They’re all about warmth, sustain, and a clean, singing tone. The Area J™ captures all of those qualities. It is not loud, but it has a very focussed attack, so it has power where it counts - at the center of the tone. The lows are very clear and clean, and the highs are both smooth and open-sounding. We’ve reduced the magnet-pull, and included 4-conductor wiring to allow both series and parallel humbucking modes.
