The legendary bassist Jimmy Haslip came by the Aguilar Artist Loft to demo the DCB™ pickups and OBP-3 preamp!
Aguilar President Dave Boonshoft walks you through a few of the many great tones possible with the DCB pickups.
The DCB pickups use dual ceramic bar magnets that provide a dynamic and responsive attack that works for all playing styles. These pickups have well-developed overtones and singing sustain in the body and decay of the notes. The uniform magnetic field of a bar magnet allows each note to have accurate dynamic response and more harmonic content.
In the video, Jimmy is playing a gorgeous Roscoe Century Signature V bass which is loaded with the DCB pickups in the D2 size and the OBP-3SK/PP preamp. The signal on the recording is taken from the XLR output on the Tone Hammer 500 head which is set to ‘Pre-EQ’.
