Passive PJ pickups wanted

Post by rhodesy » 04 Sep 2017, 14:28

Hi all
I'm chasing some passive PJ pickups to throw in my bass. It's a roadworn P body with AVRi P neck and 3 way toggle switch. I currently have the roadworn P pups in it with a tonestyler jazz pup, both passive. The impedance is not quite right although they sound great soloed, there's too much volume drop when both on full. so I'm wanting a matching PJ set.
What ya got?
Cheers

Are you sure both pickups are in phase ? If they are out of phase you will see a significant volume drop when both are on full.

Hi mate,

I have the DiMarzio PJ set, DP122 & DP123 in cream color.

This set has hotter output and are both hum-cancelling.

On YouTube you can find a video on these pickups combined with the Tonestyler... really impressive!

They are NPJ4 . . .

Price? . . msg me an offer, I guess . . They have never been taken out of their box (although the box has seen several house mooves etc, and is a little worn), . . .they were purchased for a future project, that hasnt eventuated as yet
Thats really all I can tell you , as Ive never used or heard them .(heard good things about them, though)

probably should also mention - I have a set of as new EMG PJs . . .
which, I think, (I could be wrong) are an active system (with preamp), but still passive pickups?
So I think they qualify as well, but kinda depends on what you think of the EMG sound .
Anyway , thought I should mention that as well.
