guim74's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" it is lment was missing was my jazz bass US"

Crel JB42
my ears hear the microwave for 21 days
my jb was equipped micro simple model Fender vintage'75 ... so original a buying opportunity in my Jazzbass (it's a 98 model with Us corp in ash and maple handle all .. .magnifique!)
partags opinions on Dimarzio ultrajazz and the German manufacturer Delano encourage me to choose CreI for qualitprix report and most qu'enjolivant positive return of these microphones. Because for the same price as CreI the delano sell anyway has 188 E

their forte is the first evidence cot dynamics and their Uniformity in the bass sound spectrum

stipul as it is on the website of Mr CREL, these are the micro to restore youth to your old jazz bass it is Mexican, japanese or the usa but not to give them a more modern color or type. they embellish the Jazzbass specific grain that we know.
micro JB 42 CreI are btw Mountains series on bass guitar models and even designs the Luhier Capelli (low Ain or I brought up the famous microphone).

while to finish this eloge compared to my old vintage Fender pickups, this is what I have not on micro CREL:
* Over the definition of medium and AC is undoubtedly their asset
* Over finger playing dynamics
* No pop playing slap (no stud magnet attraction / cord)
* Sound less mushy and better equilibrated dan the serious neck pickup surtou
* More percussive sound in the upper medium to the bridge
* Downs over medium prsents
* Of an acute compresss hair

Crel JB42
Mounted on a JB Squier Classic Vibes, I just give my opinion after 4 months of use in rehearsals and concerts.
Compared to the original Squier pickups (which are already very good) the particularity of Crel is both in depth and definition.

The bass is deeper, less cavernous. Mediums emerge beautifully and especially the treble is not at all showy.
The bridge pickup is particularly clear in the mix, it has a terrible momentum. Easel bottom and 3/4 sleeve is the perfect combination for rock with JB42.
The neck pickup is less demonstrative but he fills his role perfectly well.
The other feature is the sound quality when you lower the volume level with the two mics half was exactly the same sonic palette that background but just two times weaker. It is not at all the case for some microphones are muted in this case.
Finally I now use much more the tone that makes the origins without this side much better than stifled.
Slap is a treat, the equilibrium is really stunning. Besides from JB42 I sold my compressor (EBS multicomp) that I used before permanently and is it any more useful so the dynamics of JB42 encourages play with shades. It touches or is Bourine: the sound is always clear. Acute sing but do not attack.

In fact I think they are relatively transparent and well they transcribe the sound of the violin without excessive color like most pickups replacement.

Before Crel I had DiMarzio (DP123) on a maple neck with JB and once mounted on the classic vibes with rosewood DiMarzio were not at all suitable: too low mids, treble completely absent .. .

Noise level with two microphones background is totally silent. When you drop one of the volumes, however, compared to humbuckers as DP123 evidemmment there are more parasites (when approaching a screen or amplifier), but since I shielded copper the cavities of the JB I have almost no noise.

I did not choose the JB41 because I thought they would have sounded too "light" compared to her that I love and I bine is because JB42 are perfect when you need a deep sound.

In short, for 120 euros the pair new I do not see why deprive yourself trying.
I would do this choice without worry.

raph.bass's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Almost Perfect"

Crel JB42
A Warmoth used in combination with a PB42.
I tried a few microphones before it (Di Marzio, Fender, Bartolini) but Crel best met my expectations in terms of sound.
No sound too twangy in the bridge position, specific attacks a response to the perfect shades, not too acute present.
However big downside: very sensitive to noise on stage.
So I changed to a Silent JB42 that rule this concern.
Noted that I use on a 5-string bass without any concern for capture or balance between strings.
