original Dano lipstick vs. same era Kay pickup


Just astounded how warm and thumpy that little 3K Dano pickup that is also in the guitars -- how good it sounds for the roots/thump bass stuff I do.

Now to another lo-end shortscale 60s bass besides the Dano shorthorn -- I am all eaten up with the Kay Value Leader bass

Anyone know how this pickup sounds.. hoping it's kind of the same.

This one looks nice but at some point they added adjustable truss rod to these and the guitars so I am going to hold out for one of those and it gotta be clean -- also holding out for kool Kay headstock, not the lo-rent Old Kraftsman or Truetone versions
