DiMarzio's Ultra Jazz pickup is just what its name implies: more of everything you want from a Jazz Bass replacement pickup.....lots more. It's fat, it's funky, it's big, and it's hum canceling. The Ultra Jazz is available individually in neck and bridge models, and as a matched set.
All positions. The Ultra Jazz was designed to fit the original Fender Jazz Bass, which has neck and bridge pickup cavities of two different sizes. Some current basses use the same length pickup in both positions. These pickups are sold individually as DP147 (short) and DP148 (long) if your bass requires either one size pickup or the other. Please refer to the dimensions below for the correct choice for your bass:
The appearance of the Ultra Jazz is traditional, but the wide dynamic range and frequency response of the hybrid magnetic structure allows both vintage and modern sounds. As with the Model J , hum canceling is achieved with each coil sensing a pair of strings, rather than a stacked design; even with a relatively high DC resistance figure, the Ultra Jazz has very strong, percussive highs and clean lows.
Note: Each neck and bridge pickup contains two coils. With the addition of a mini switch or push-pull pot, series / parallel switching is possible with hum canceling in both positions. However, coil cutting is not possible with this pickup because both coils must be "on" to hear all four strings.
