The new pickups are amazing. Clear highs and resounding lows with virtually no bow noise.
The PUTW Double Bass Pickup NEW, SMALLER, 3 Times more output
This pickup does everything, and is extremely feedback resistant at the same time. The system utilizes two elements for complete control over fundamentals, harmonics, and dynamics. It is also credited with being one of the absolute smoothest sounding pickups for bowing, while also being highly praised by jazz & Bluegrass musicians. The primary sensor is a paper thin polymer film membrane that is sized to fit perfectly and invisibly under the bass bridge foot. A second, smaller sensor is attached to the face of the bridge, and provides a completely adjustable range of dynamic sensitivity and detail. Moving this sensor closer to the strings gives more punch and articulation, and closer to the body, it enhances the fundamental tones and overtones. The basic pickup system typically plugs directly into either a mono or Stereo Line Driver Pre-amp that is mounted to the underside of the tailpiece, but it is also available as a passive system for use with other pre-amps, or plugged directly into a number of high impedance bass amplifiers. The Line Driver offers a very convenient volume control right on the instrument. Passive versions come with a 1/4" output jack. The installation is completely noninvasive. The length and width dimensions of the bass bridge foot are requested for the best performance and appearance.(note- photo shows only the bass foot element)
