  • A2P magnet - smooth or rough?

    I assume smooth?

    Gonna convert a Jazz into an A2P because cheaper.

    A2P use smooth. Most prefer smooth for at the neck; it's said to give slightly brighter highs.
    I've used rough in both positions with good results. IMO the difference is subtle.

      +1 to that
      Some people even claim the difference between rough and polished magnets is neglectable or even unexisting, but that's a different discussion

        I don’t hear a difference as long as they have the same charge.

          I always go roughcast every time, every context, that's just me.

            I haven't experimented with magnet swaps in Jazz and A2Pro pickups but I've done a lot of magnet swapping in Duncan 59's.

            Roughcast A2 gives 59's a tone that's warmer, rounder and more complex. Slightly squishier feel but digging in with my pick creates a slight compression that then blooms immediately.

            Polished A2 gives 59's a tone that's similar to RCA2 but slightly steelier and cleaner. Less complex and less squishy.

            Me? I'd go roughcast A2 in both the bridge and neck.
