San Diego, CA, August 2007 — Carvin, recognized the world over by musicians and audio professionals for its high quality guitars, basses, instrument amplifiers, recording equipment, and sound reinforcement products, is pleased to announce the availability of the new SP Series “Soap Bar” Bass Humbucker pickups. An available option for all Carvin custom-ordered 4-, 5-, and 6-string bass guitars, these incredible new pickups deliver deep, smooth bass response with excellent mid range punch and top end definition.
Quality construction has always been a hallmark of Carvin products, and the new SP Series Humbuckers are no exception. The SP Series Humbuckers incorporate side by side coil design that enhances mid range growl while also delivering a smooth bottom end.
