The SSB-4s is a passive 4-string soapbar pickup set that packs a big punch with organic feel.
Just because your soapbars are passive doesn’t mean your tone has to suffer. Some players want great tone, but simply don’t want to hassle with batteries. We can appreciate that. This passive variation has a moderate output and a slightly more subtle tone than its active brothers. The punch you want is still there, but the feel of the pickup is more organic. Drop tunings are no problem for this set. Even with the lowest of lows, the articulation and low-end clarity shine. If you’re switching from an active to passive setup, these will drop-in to any EMG 35 sized pickup slot.
For optimal tone control, install with the STC-2 or STC-3 preamps.
