The DP251 set combines the Area P with an Area J bridge model bass guitar pickups in one complete package. Both the Area J and the Area P pickups have a vintage sound that's all about warmth, sustain, and tone. It's also about synamics and response.

DP250 Area P
Like the Area J, the Area P has a vintage sound that’s all about warmth, sustain, and tone. It’s also about dynamics and response. The Area P doesn’t just “hear” the notes. It also hears how the player attacks the notes, and it tracks the nuances in a player’s individual approach.

DP248 Area J Bridge
Been waiting for a bass pickup that sounds like a vintage J Bass® pickup and cancels hum? Your wait is over. Bass pickups are usually described with aggressive terms such as “amazing punch” and “thundering lows”, but that’s not the sound of vintage J Bass® pickups. They’re all about warmth, sustain, and a clean, singing tone.

The Area J™ captures all of those qualities. It is not loud, but it has a very focused attack, so it has power where it counts – at the center of the tone. The lows are very clear and clean, and the highs are both smooth and open-sounding. We’ve reduced the magnet-pull, and included 4-conductor wiring to allow both series and parallel humbucking modes.

Recommended For
All PJ style basses.

Tech Talk
In keeping with the purpose of achieving a vintage sound, the Area P is not a high-output pickup. It uses Alnico 2 magnets for reduced magnet-pull, and it can be wired for both series and parallel humbucking modes.
