Aguilar, the leading-edge USA manufacturer of high-quality bass pickups, is pleased to announce the Super Splits. These hum-canceling pickups are voiced to create rich bass tone - crisp and open treble, barking midrange and huge lows in a soap bar shape.
The Super Splits feature 42-gauge Formvar wire and Alnico V magnets. Because of their split coil design they are also hum-canceling! These pickups sound great passive or can be paired with an onboard preamp, such as Aguilar’s OBP-1, 2 or 3, for the ultimate in tonal flexibility.
Two sets are available: the AG 4SSP-D1 for four string basses and the AG 5SSP-D2 for five string basses. These calibrated sets include one pickup for the neck position and one pickup for the bridge position. Like all Aguilar pickups, the Super Splits are wound in Aguilar’s NYC factory. They will be available February 1st and carry a US street price of $198.00 for the AG 4SSP-D1 and $232.00 for the AG 5SSP-D2.
