A fine product
Mr. Moore 22.07.2019
I have two of these: one for a fretless and one for a fretted bass. Installation may take some time, depending on your instrument, but it’s a solid upgrade for any instrument. I use them with my Roland GR-55 in the studio and on live gigs. No need to haul any other pedals.

Great hex and MIDI system for bass!
Jon-Inge 04.02.2022
The GK-3b system can be used on most basses to add a hexaphonic pickup to your bass, which enables you to connect to devices with a GK-input (like Roland GK guitar synthesizers and effect units). The installation kit offers the same functionality as the outboard GK-system, with program change and source switches as well as Synth Volume. Takes a little installation effort, but any guitar technician should be able to install this system, and you may do it yourself as well, if you are a little handy with tools. Using the installation kit makes the
When installed and adjusted correctly, the unit provides great string-by-string tracking and subsequent MIDI tracking. Note that the unit itself does not output MIDI signals, and requires the use of a converter (such as the mentioned Roland GK-synthesizers or similar). Also note that tracking below an open A-string will suffer from a bit of latency due to the time required for pitch detection. All in all, the Roland GK unit with a compatible converter or synth device is an excellent entry point to the world of MIDI bass.

Great Kit for the installer
Philip636 26.12.2015
This kit is fairly easy to instal but does require some modifications to your guitar drilling holes for the switches and wires etc! Great if you are confident with your skills. Roland quality kit and once installed works as well if not better than any other bass to midi kit I've used!

Good quality kit
Anonymous 21.03.2015
Very good quality. Can be used with 4, 5 and 6 string basses. In can also be adjusted to fit different string spacings. Obviously, you need to solder the kit but it comes with easy to read diagram/manual.
