Elevate Your Metal Sound with the Seymour-Duncan ASB-BO-5S Blackout Pickup Set
Active pickups and electronics voiced for the aggressive bass tones of metal, classic metal, punk and heavy rock.
Blackouts for Bass represents the active bass soapbar pickup specifically voiced for aggressive music. Instead of the radical EQ boosting and cutting required to make flat, sterile pickups come alive, Blackouts for Bass delivers the goods with less tweaking. Blackouts for Bass have more of what you want: cleaner highs, deeper lows, and greater dynamic range than traditional active bass pickups. This high energy, expansive sound is capable of covering all your other gigs with ease.
The full-length dual blades accommodate maximum string spacings up to 2.70" (68.5mm) for the four-string model and up to 3.10" (78.5mm) for the five-string model.
Available for four- or five-string bass. Same size as our Phase II soapbars (direct replacement for EMG© 35 and 40). Also available is a Blackouts for bass Tone Circuit , which offers two focused bands of EQ dialed-in to the frequencies that metal players need most.
