Details

Steve Bailey is a world-renowned player whose signature 6-string fretless bass demands a pickup system that can handle a diverse range of musical styles with equal power and finesse. Steve wanted a pickup system that would handle all his musical efforts, both on stage and in the studio. Steve's wishes were granted with this pickup/preamp set. Diverse tone and articulate, detailed performance from the neck and bridge active soapbar pickups can handle the wide range of musical styles Steve performs. This one set of pickups takes Steve from a solo performance with slap grooves and shimmering harmonics, to a straight-ahead rock show, to a jazz tracking session with ease. His tone is crystal clear yet powerful, punchy yet refined.

This preamp was voiced by Steve Bailey himself. The 3 band Tone Circuit provides bass and treble controls, a master volume, a blend control, and a special frequency contour switch which is engaged by pulling up of the volume control. It is optimized to bring out fretless harmonics, as well as mid-range boost. There are two small trim pots on the circuit board can be tweaked to preset the frequency contour EQ just the way you want.

The Phase I soapbar pickups fit in a 466 x 127 (the traditional P4) routed 6-string bass. The preamp system can be installed in any fretless bass that has space for 3 control knobs and a single 9v battery in the control cavity. Two 9v batteries can be wired together in series for added headroom. Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA.
