The Bartolini P25CBC-B Classic Bass Neck pickup has a versatile voice for many musical genres, so the P25CBC is one of Bartolini's most popular pickups. The P2 shape is quite common in 5-string basses from many instrument builders. The P25CBC pickup is constructed using two types of precision CNC milled carbon steel, brass, and copper powered by ceramic (ferrite) magnets projected for focused aperture. Coil wiring is Neck coil South and Bridge coil North.
Bartolini's Classic Bass soapbars make you sound better, so you play better. They have a rich, deep voice with lots of high-end clarity and warmth. When you dig in, they are responsive and growly. When you pull back, they are clear and sweet. And they'll take any slapping and popping you want to give them. The Classic Bass series is popular with progressive, jazz, gospel, and metal musicians where articulation is critical. Without sacrificing low-end, Classic Bass pickups are sweat-proof and won't crackle and thud when you touch them or hit them with the strings.
If you play a wide variety of music, you know you need some pro-level pickups, but you don't want to do a big upgrade project, Classic Bass pickups are a great choice. They are passive and will work with your current electronics in most basses.
