  • The impedance of the Preformer P-bass

    I have a preformer P-bass pickup and am actually extremely confused by it... I tested it's impedance and it came up a whopping 17k... now... my normal p-bass comes up something like 11.3-11.5k but they sound identical... except the preformer has slightly less output (but that's due to the pickup being sunken in the body) can anyone explain how this happened? I'm stunned... I switched the pickups out in between basses and actually couldn't tell the differance...
    You can get a suprisingly good country guitar tone out of a Marshall Halfstack.

    I'm guessing the Performer uses a smaller gauge of wire than the stock. That way, it might have less windings and still have a higher resistance, thus having less output.
