Bigger, badder, bolder. The Model E1 packs a strong punch with intense growl and midrange. Not for the faint of heart.
There are three length options available. Please choose the appropriate option for your bass! Check out this page for more information on jazz pickup lengths.

Had this on my wishlist for a while, and when Christmas finally came around, I snagged some. They sound pretty good with flatwounds, not all that bright (which is good, as I love dark tone). Overall, 10/10, would get again.

I bought a used MIM Jazz bass that needed new pickups, so I thought I’d give these a shot. I’m glad I did. These picks are great with high output and I love the growl my bass has. Highly recommended. I’d definitely purchase these again as well as other pickups from this seller.

I don’t want to throw around contradictory words but these pickups are fat and crisp and clear. I can make small adjustments on my amp to get them exactly how I like them (bass flat, mids and treble boosted a tad). I can get p-bass-like tones with the clarity of the bridge pickup and probably even more clear and sparkly if I wanted to but I haven’t tried.
I’m also using 500k pots. I now have a use for a tone pot! 50-75% is warm and more vintage and 100% gives me brightness and more modern sounds when I dig in.
Really a nice pickup. I think the big pole pieces help. They give you a lot of sound to sculpt. They are also pretty normal on winds–not extremely hot or anything–just a bit higher than vintage specs from the information I can gather and my own multimeter readings. Not crazy mid thumping but maybe a little more fullness than vintage wind.
For comparison probably a little milder than Seymour Duncan quarter pound for jazz and versatile enough to get aggressive or chill out.
