Zone 51

78.00 $

The “Zone 51” is a super expressive and responsive pickup, deep, punchy, rich in low-mid and topped with just the right amount of highs, to cut nicely through the mix.

The mother of all basses is the legendary Precision (released in 51’) that up until 57’ featured a single coil! (rather than a humbucker) We took it as an example and gave our new perspective to this old (and amazing) design.

The Single coil we’ve created has an exceptionally broad EQ range and it gets every tiny touch of a string. It enables maximum expression for the player and perfect for every genre. The unorthodox single coil on a Precision is surprisingly awesome, sometimes, simpler is better!

  • Cotton string that’s wrapped around the bridge pickup.

    Choose "0" for original setting, "+5%" for higher output, warmer and darker tone, "-5%" for lower output, brighter and crispier tone.

    Wax Potting is done to prevent microphonic feedback. Unpotted pickup may produce feedback but have vintage like qualities and a brighter tone.
