The J-Bass "American Truck" series
The J-Bass "American Truck" Series covers a pickup range for the whole tonal spectrum for any bass player in any style. Whether you desire a very smooth tone for melodic r'n'b and soul, rock, blues, jazz, or whether you are into the pop&slap thang...the Turnaround series will make sure to take your breath away, as it will offer you pickups of substance and a "heartbeat" to them.
If you're looking for the sweet spot of melodic runs, look no further. We had 3 great N.Y bass players working on our prototype giving us their guidelines on how this pickup should be developed. By the time we were done (approximately 7 months after building the prototype) we knew that we nailed it as all 3 of our bass players were absolutely happy with the final result. We created the Diesel with great players like Jaco in mind (more like at heart), overwound the coils and used Alnico 5 magnet rods to give these a tasty meaty flavour. The Diesel Set is the complete package for the tasteful bass player who enjoys the use of dynamics from very intense to extremely smooth.

We were in the quest for the absolute killer humbucking pickup that can also operate as
a single coil on split mode. We've built the Enola, which was originally an idea for a fully customised pickup requested by one of N.Y.'s finest musicians and technically among the most advanced bass players in the country, in his field of action, Mr Marc Wallace. The Enola is a fully customized (Made to Measure) humbucking bass pickup, with Alnico 3 rod magnets, 3 conductor wiring to switch between humbucking and single coil mode, and wooden pickup covers to give it a classy feel and help blend in harmonically with all the other wooden parts of the instrument. The Enola offers versatility of a very high standard.

Time to slap, smack'em and pop! These are the bad boys we put on OUR own basses, and they sound HUUUUGE!!! Whether you wanna get funky, slap yourself silly, or just get in the groove, these "puppies" have bark and bite that would even make lions back off. Taller coils wound in heavy insulation 42awg wire and Alnico V magnets give the LSJ a clear top end with a scooped midrange and a tight bottom. These are the ideal choice for slap players, or use with a preamp with a bass boost.

Armed with a thicker driving bottom end hum-cancelling split coils, the P-Bass is a favorite among rock players and session musicians as the perfect working man's bass. Armed with classic P Bass tone, the Tanker is has all the warmth and clarity to reproduce the best tones of Motown, as well as every bit of deep force to keep a rock or blues band pumping!
