Hey, hopefully a simple question but how exactly does a pickup blender work? Is it in anyway different to a pickup selector (but a sweeping change as opposed to a position switch) or does it work differently?

I'm rather new to bass and this is one facet that eludes me.

Cheers

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

On a two-pickup instrument, a pickup selector usually turns one pickup off and the other one on by completing a circuit. In the middle position, it turns both pickups on equally. A blender favors one pickup over the other without cutting off one of the pickups (unless you turn it all of the way to one side or the other). It changes the balance between the two pickups without fiddling with the volume knobs.

it's like a crossfader on a mixer, and your pick-ups are like the chanels.


Could not have been explained better than that.
