Anatomy of a bass Xotic XJ-1T Jazz-Style Bass Series
Alder and Ash wood give the XP series a solid low and low-mid range of tone, something that lighter wood bodies can’t achieve. For the XJ-IT‘s silent single-coil performance, we use our own system to eliminate the hum, while maintaining the tone of the single-coil pickup. Since it is completely passive, it does not require any batteries or any other power source.
The XJ series’ Xotic Pickups are traditional Alnico 5 rod magnets, AWG-42 formvar wire, and Vulcan fiber bobbins. At their base is vintage flavor, but with higher gain giving richer sound in both passive and active modes. Topped with the very trusted Hipshot Ultralite, known for quality and precision of their machine heads. They are durable and lightweight, which helps for longevity and prevents head dive.
Finally, the Xotic Bass preamp is modern feat of engineering with its tiny size and huge sound. Master volume (push/pull for active and passive), 3-band EQ, Mid and Treble frequency selector and 20db of boost this preamp allows the player enjoy a clean, musical and full-bodied active EQ and boost.
