Planet Pickups is a company located in Denmark, specializing in producing pickups
exclusively for the double bass. The owner is a successful bass player and electronic
engineer who have gathered years of experience working on perfecting the best
sounding pickup to amplify the double bass with sonic accuracy.
The demand for a quality pickup that fits into the wing slot of the bridge has increased.
Many bass players favor this design because of the convenient application and most
sonically logical location for a pickup. The development of the Planet Wing pickup
has involved several professional bass players and their input was utilized to develop
a sonically accurate wing mounted pickup.
