Kinman Pickup Set J-Bass Chameleon Jazz Bass Zero Hum Passive Tonabnehmer
The Chameleon pickup has extraordinary versatility and, like a Chameleon, changes it's (sonic) color according to it's state of arousal.
When aroused it's perfect for attention grabbing solos with dynamic tap, slap n smack techniques of the bass virtuoso. However they are a versatile multi-faceted Chameleon, and can easily step back into the rhythm section after the applause subsides. And we did it without active electronics so, "look Ma.... no batteries"
The Chameleon produces thick chocolaty sound that has lower midrange prominence and a detailed gritty piano-like presence so that it doesn't need to be played loud in order to be heard. Both pickup turned up full yields a wonderful surprise, a hollow but chunky gritty sound with extra bounce and presence, our personal favorite bass sound ... even at low room volume.
