Welcome to the low end


Let me introduce myself, I am Tim (4String), Ash's business partner and I hold down the low end around Oil City Pickups. If you have any questions about our bass pick ups or indeed any ideas that you might be interested in seeing come into existence, post them here. We are always open to ideas about new product lines or indeed questions on our existing range.

Our new Jazz Bass sized offering ....

Aug 15, 2018Edited: Nov 17, 2018

I am already aware of this pickup design and its principle "test pilot" from another UK forum. When is the product likely to become available more generally and in other physical formats?

Hi, the Jazz Bass and 51 Precision versions are available to special order right now ... as pre-production examples. We are hoping to get some potential customer feedback about the sorts of formats you guys would like to see! Possibilities include 'bass soap-bar', 'Stingray', guitar sized humbucker etc. We are also looking at the possibility of making a hum cancelling split P bass variant!
