The Bartolini 8S is a Fender Precision Bass® (P-Bass®) replacement pickup set. The 8S pickups are highly respected by musicians and luthiers alike for their deep tone. The 8S pickups use a ceramic bar magnet in a single coil configuration. The two pickups in the P-Bass pair overlap each other by 3/4" (19mm).
The "original series" bass pickups are passive ceramic magnet designs. They are cast in epoxy to remove unwanted feedback and microphonics.
Bartolini pickups are precision magnetic transducers designed and manufactured to bring out the fullest response from electric guitars and basses. Each pickup is hand assembled from selected materials and carefully tested for output level, square wave response, hum level and microphonics. All Bartolini pickups carry a one year warranty for defects in workmanship or materials.
