Aguilar Amplification ispleased to announce the AG 4J-HC and AG 5J-HC hum-canceling pickupsets. As a direct replacement for 4 and 5-string Fender Jazz® andother J-style basses, these split-coil pickups give you noiselessJazz Bass tone that works for all playing styles.

With traditional single-coil pickups, bassists are plagued byhum when the neck and bridge pickups are at different volumelevels. While other hum-canceling pickups tackle the noise, you areleft with thinner lows, a harsher midrange and a lack ofdynamics.

The Aguilar hum-canceling pickups feature a split-coil designthat allows you to get any pickup level combination without60-cycle hum - all while retaining the natural, organic tone ofyour bass. Now you can experience the deep, resonant low-end of theneck pickup or solo the bridge pickup for that sought-aftermidrange cut without annoying hum!

Wound in Aguilar's NYC factory, the HC pickups use 42 gaugeFormvar wire and Alnico V magnets for the big, dynamic tone thatAguilar pickups are known for.

The AG 4J-HC pickups will be available in July 2012 and carry astreet price of $189.00. The AG 5J-HC pickups will be availableshortly afterwards with a street price of $219.00.
