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 has 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.

Planet Wing Pickup The pickup chosen by professionals, here are some endorsements;
“Why do I love using the Planetwing Pickup? It articulates my performance, at any volume, so my bass cuts through the ensemble with the natural sound of my instrument. It’s quick and extremely responsive, and it attaches to, or removed in seconds. Thank you Planetwing, for making the best pick up out there! -Roberto Vally
“I have always been a microphone guy, but the Planet Wing Pickup never leaves my bass. I have to admit that it might be the only pickup that comes close to giving me what I want from a microphone- it’s that good…The Planet Wing restores my faith in pickups.” -Phil Palombi
