Anybody else a Chisonic fan?

Anybody else a Chisonic fan?

Just got my 3rd Lakland from the factory yesterday, the blue one on the left. They are still building incredible basses, this one is perfect. I really like the tone of the Chisonic single coils.

I've not played one and youtube comparisons are so subjective.

Brad, how would you compare the P to a Darkstar pup?

I know Ed gets a lot of good tones out of them. I tend to be a one tone per bass player.

I had a Glaub with a Darkstar and I like this better. The Darkstar was a great sounding pickup but the magnetic field over those skinny poles is too narrow for me. It had a similar attack to a 50's style single coil P pickup, and I also got fairly big drops in string volume with even slight string bends.

The Chisonic is a single coil in that big cover, and it's got a slightly darker, more low mids tone than a Darkstar. The pole pieces are large so no volume drops and the attack is smoother, more like a bi-pole P pickup. I also like that the Chisonic interacts with the volume control a bit, rolling off the volume just a bit will cut the very highest frequencies which reduces string and fret noise but doesn't cut as much tone as the tone knob.
