A New Bass Pickup Line

Bass players looking to expand their tone palette won't want to miss Roland's new GK-3B pickup, designed for driving synth-bass rigs such as the popular Roland V-Bass and GR-20 guitar synthesizer. Much smaller and thinner than its GK-2B predecessor, the GK-3B is similar to its guitar counterpart, the GK-3, but catered for bass players.

Roland GK-3B Features:
  • Enables connection to synthesizers, such as Roland's V-Bass and GR-20 v.2
  • Ultra-thin design
  • Large, smooth-action volume knob
  • Select switch for normal bass tone, synth sound, or mixture of both
  • Easy installation
  • Requires GKC-5 or GKC-10 13-pin cable - not included

GK3B Bass Pickup

Very easy to install, comes with many options for different situations. I'm using it with the GR-55 Synth. Very easy to setup, and being able to double the bass line with a rock organ helps fatten the sound, for our rockin' teenage combo.

Taking the Bass up a notch

The Roland GK-3b is a great way to express yourself on bass. I have the GR-20 pedal synth and I must say its worth what I paid. The Bass isnt as sophisticated as it's guitar counterpart but u can definately broaden sum new horizons.

Works Great

Just picked one up a few weeks ago. Yes the installation takes some work, but if you prepare, read the directions, and take your time, it's a one-time install with amazing results. The tracking is excellent, and has brought a whole new dimension to my playing. Using in combination with the VB-99 and a laptop w/FL Studio.

2.5/5 stars, slightly complex installation, not the greatest response, takes lots of tweaking

I just bought this pickup for my bass (fender jazz), it definatly took me a long time to set up because you have to get it the EXACT right pickup height, after thats done I plugged it in to a GK30 guitar synth. damn... not good at all... it was very randomly sketchy, the E string had terrible response, even after tweaking a lot, it seemed to only be reasonable in the higher frets... but all in all, I feel ripped off, i will try it with a v-bass synth next time and see how that goes, but if your getting it now, make sure you are able to get a refund if you don't like it.
