Lollar Pickups Announces New DC J-Bass Pickup

A New Hum-cancelling Pickup for Jazz and PJ Basses

Lollar Pickups is a designer and manufacturer of electro-magnetic pickups for electric, bass, and lap steel guitars. The company has earned a reputation for excellence and quality, building pickups that combine the best of modern manufacturing methods with vintage voicing.

The new DC J-Bass is Lollar’s take on a hum-cancelling pickup for Jazz Basses and it offers the classic J-Bass tone minus the hum. According to General Manager Rick Vanselow, “Though we continue to build our vintage-inspired single-coil version of J-Bass pickups, we also recognize the differing needs of our customers and are pleased to respond to that demand for quieter operation with this new hum-cancelling design.”

The DC J-Bass is a great solution to noise or interference issues, but it’s also well-suited to players looking for a slightly hotter and fuller-bodied Jazz Bass voice. It is designed to be equally complementary as a set of two, or as the bridge pickup in a PJ set.  

Lollar works with many studio artists, session players, and musicians on the road where inconsistent power and environmental factors such as interference from stage lights and other equipment can lead to a lot of unwanted noise from single-coils. After listening to countless customer requests, they were inspired to take on the task of building a hum-cancelling J-Bass pickups. The DC J-Bass is available immediately and ships with black covers.

Retail price for the DC J-Bass is $155 USD.
