New York, NY — Aguilar, the leading edge USA manufacturer of high quality bass pickups, is pleased to announce the AG 4M/J-HC and AG 5M/J-HC pickup sets. These calibrated sets include one of Aguilar’s AG 4M or 5M pickup for the bridge position and the AG 4J-HC or 5J-HC pickup for the neck position.
The AG 4M and 5M humbucking pickups are wired in parallel to recreate the classic Stingray® tone – crisp treble, articulate midrange and thunderous lows. They feature 42-gauge Formvar wire and Alnico V magnets. Gard Lewis of Roscoe Guitars says the AG 5M pickups have “all of the grit and grind of a classic Stingray® pickup, but with more even string-to-string response and tighter lows.”
By adding the AG 4J-HC or AG 5J-HC pickup, you can enjoy the deep, resonant tone of a neck position, Jazz Bass® pickup without any 60-cycle hum. This pickup has a split-coil design that utilizes Alnico V magnets and 42-gauge Formvar wire – 43-gauge Polyester/Nylon wire for the AG 5J-HC – for classic Jazz Bass tone that works for all playing styles.
The AG 4M/J-HC and AG 5M/J-HC pickup sets offer players all of the characteristics that Aguilar pickups are known for – excellent string-to-string balance, consistency of tone and rich harmonic content. They sound great passive or active. When paired with an onboard preamp, such as Aguilar’s OBP-1, 2 or 3, bassists will have the ultimate in tonal flexibility.
Like all Aguilar pickups, the AG 4M/J-HC and AG 5M/J-HC are wound in Aguilar’s NYC factory. They are available now and carry a US street price of $199.00 for the AG 4M/J-HC and $224.00 for the AG 5M/J-HC.
Since their release in 2010, Aguilar pickups have become the new standard for exceptional bass guitar pickups. Providing the rich, musical tone that Aguilar gear is known for, Aguilar pickups are used by top luthiers and bass players the world over. Whether you are looking for period-correct vintage flavors or the most modern tones; Aguilar has the pickup for your bass.
Your bass has a voice, let it be heard.
