I build these pickups to order with an approx 3-4 week turnaround after receipt of full payment.  Please contact me prior to purchase for an accurate ETA.

Introducing the “Dirty Slappers” P-Bass pickup set, wound with period correct ’60s wire.  I wind these pickups on a grey bottom late ’60s style bobbin with alnico 5 magnets.  The wind is classic mid to late ’60s 42 AWG Plain enamel wire slightly overwound to 11.5k.  These pickups have punchy yet crystal cleans with a nice bass low end growl and clear high ends.  This set does not come with the brass grounding plate but includes the foam rubber mounts.

My “Dirty Slappers” have been described by one Brisbane guitar tech as the best vintage reproduction pickups he has heard!

    I put a set of Dave’s Dirty Slappers into a P’bass I was lucky enough to get built – and have been so impressed with the sound and tone of these babies ever since. Along with the P bass tone – I found that I get a bit more of the upper mids that really helps the bass cut through in a two guitar band like the one I play in – they sound great with finger-style and pic and I would highly recommend them – in my opinion better than anything you will get overseas. Dave’s knowledge and service are also second to none – what are you waiting for – get in contact…
