The Apollo Jazz Bass Linear Humbuckers
Seymour Duncan’s engineering wizard Kevin Beller has been helping us develop products since the early days of the company and he’s also a bass player who is deeply passionate about developing new tone tools for musicians. His quest to capture the traditional tone but have it be completely noiseless with some performance modifications led to the creation of the Apollo Jazz Bass Linear Humbuckers. These pickups use a side by side coil design that gives you a noise free performance in the studio or on stage. The Apollo set has plenty of warmth in the neck and a balanced smoothness with extra punch and detail in the bridge.
The Apollo Jazz Bass is available in bridge and neck models for 4 and 5-string, with two size options for the 5-string (67/70mm or 70/74mm). They can be purchased in matched sets or individually. They are extremely versatile and can be used for just about any musical style: funk, rock, hard rock, blues, instrumental, country.
Each pickup is hand-crafted right here in our Santa Barbara, CA, factory using hand ground Alnico 5 rod magnets. We also use Forbon flatwork,and vacuum wax pot the pickups for squeal-free performance.
