Double-Bass Pickup Systems

D1 Double Bass System

The D1 system’s sound is warm, tight, and dynamic and has plenty of headroom to play your instrument loud!

The D1 double bass has been developed in close coordination with technicians and artists. The D1 system includes a simple and unobtrusive active preamp that is an all-in-one construction with the 1/4”output jack. This attaches easily onto the two middle strings between the bridge and tailpiece. The 9-volt battery clip simply attaches to the tailpiece with Velcro.

The B-Band D1 system also includes the new updated three easy-to-install Statement transducer pickups*. These new pickups are all one piece from the pickup to the preamp for better signal and durability. Two pickups fit at the wing slots of the bridge, using non-adhesive cork shims. The third pickup is installed under the foot of the bridge’s bass side, using the string pressure on the bridge to hold it in place. Inside the preamp there is a user mix control to set the balance between the bridge and the body sound for exact replication of your instrument’s unique tone.
