The K&K Sound Bass Master Rockabilly SOLO includes the Bass Max and Fingerboard pickups prewired to a high quality stereo jack. The SOLO version does not include the Bass Master two channel preamp, it is designed for players that already have an existing Bass Master pickup system and preamp, who wish to use their existing preamp with a different instrument. The Bass Master Rockabilly SOLO pickup assembly is wired in stereo (two channels) and requires a stereo cable to connect to the Bass Master preamp (cable and preamp not included).
The K&K Sound Bass Master Rockabilly is the first upright bass transducer system designed specifically for Rockabilly and slap bass. It combines two transducers (the Bass Max and a fingerboard pickup) to create an integrated double bass pickup system that brings out the percussive and subtle fingerboard sounds, as well as strong and warm bass tones. Each Bass Master Rockabilly can be fine-tuned via the separate bass and treble controls within the two-channel preamp (not included), providing an infinite range of combinations for every player and any style of play.
The first component, the popular Bass Max, is positioned in the bridge wing. To make the Bass Max, K&K combines two transducers into a "sandwich" in order to maximize and enhance vibrations captured from the entire bridge. Only one Bass Max pickup is necessary to provide an even signal from all four (or five) strings. Its strong midrange signal is ideal for cutting through the mix in loud Rockabilly situations, or providing a warm and supportive line for country bluegrass.
The fingerboard transducer's unique size and shape allows it to be precisely placed on your instrument. The preamp lets the player blend in just the right amount of slap, growl, and other fingerboard sounds to reach their audience. This allows the player to achieve the exact sound they desire.
