The new Alumitone Bass Bars were designed by Jeff Lace as an upgrade to bass guitars that use conventional size soap-bar pickups.
This is the Bass Bar 4.0, designed for a 5-string bass.
All Bass Bar Alumitone pickups feature zero noise, ultra-wide frequency response and lightweight design. A reduction of up to two pounds of weight can be achieved by replacing conventional-style pickups with this new technology without any modification to the guitar itself.
These “current driven” pickups are designed for passive installation. However, due to their low resistance, they will not only work with existing preamp technology but will enhance the sonic range of it, as well.
Alumitone Bass Bar technology uses patented and patent pending technology only available thru Lace Music Products.
Formally introduced for Earth Day, the revolutionary Alumitone family of pickups use 95% less copper wire then standard pickup designs. By reducing the need for copper it saves valuable resources, reduces open-pit mining, and reduces the need for the energy consuming process of converting copper ore to fine wire.
This 4.0″ model is for a 5-string bass. Use the Bass Bar 3.5″ for a 4-string or the Bass Bar 4.5″ for a 6-string bass.
