We moved the Rickenbacker bass tone from great to downright amazing! The benefit of the bridge replacement pickup is the added power and sustain for those wanting a bigger push without tonal coloration. Alnico 5 magnets are the force behind this pickup, which is slightly larger than the stock bridge pickup, so the original chrome mounting ring cannot be used with it. We supply a special phenolic mounting ring that goes well with our pickup and will look great on your bass. It is suggested to replace your pickups as a set; however, it is not necessary. This Rickenbacker neck position replacement adds warmth, clarity, and increases the tonal range over stock a Ric neck pickup. We use two ceramic magnets and special windings to achieve this boost. This pickup is also slightly hotter and warmer than the originals, as well as hum-cancelling. Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Rickenbacker bridge position replacement pickup uses two alnico bar magnets, 4-conductor leadwire, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal free operation. The neck model features ceramic magnets, a nickel silver cover, 4-conductor leadwire, and is also vacuum wax potted for squeal free operation.
Our Rickenbacker replacement pickups add output and hum-cancelization to 4000 series Ric basses. Great for all styles of music!
