General What is your overall opinion of this product? I have been a P-Bass player my whole bass playing life which spans now the better part of 3 decades. In this time I have always been in search of the elusive right sound. I have tried every gourmet pickup out there and was never satisfied. One day a friend and fellow bass player bought a used P-Bass with the Dimarzio DP122's in it and when I heard it I just about flipped. This was the deep, powerful tone I had always been searching for. Well I went right out and purchased a set for my #1 P-Bass and am now purchasing sets for my 2 & 3 P-Basses. I cannot say enough about these pickups, but I will suffice it to say they are the ultimate P-Bass pickup producing the ultimate P-Bass time. Try them, you will not be disappointed if you are a true P-Bass player Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? The quality of this product is outstanding. They just produce the most powerful, deep and rich tone. They are the ultimate in rock, R&B and funk sound. I have never heard a P-Bass sound better than with these pickups. Obviously from all I have stated about them, they are tonally for just a few genres of music. However, they do those genres better than any other pickup I have ever experienced. Ease of Use How was the installation process? Were the instructions or documentation easy to follow? I would guess installation was somewhat easy. However, I don't install myself I take to my local guitar tech and it takes him about 20 minutes to do it. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? This product surpassed all expectations, I have never been happier with my tone or sound. Sound How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use? The sound I get off these pickups is simply sensational. It's more powerful, dynamic, deeper and richer than any other product I have ever used. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? What can I say $59.95 @ American Musical Supply. How can you get better than that. I have paid more than double that money for other products and have been completely and utterly let down. I don't think there is a better price out there. Give them a try, you will not be let down. These pickups are all about value.
