I really like this pickup/pre a lot, but in my pickup taste testing, I think I'm in the minority and prefer the EMG MMCS, so this set has to go.
Installed for about a month, and has only a couple of hours in it.
Three-knob version: (1) volume / slap, (2) mid-range, and (3) stacked-concentric bass & treble. Can upgrade from 9 volts to 18 volts for increased headroom. Here are some details:
Hotter pickup. Recommended for classic rock, heavy rock, funk, punk, R&B, and metal.
This hum-canceling pickup offers a balanced, highly musical tone contour with a richly articulated bottom, lots of midrange, and biting treble. It's got a nice, mild "bark" without being overly brash, and it's not at all harsh in the mid-range. The low end is full and strong without being mushy or foggy.
- Cable: Four Conductor
- DC Resistance: 2.6 k (each coil)
- Resonant Peak: 9.4 KHz (in parallel)
- Magnets: Ceramic Bar
- EQ (B/M/T): 7 / 8 / 6
Three bands of active EQ, plus the proprietary Slap Switch. The lows are deep, clear, and tight. The mids range from ultra-smooth to punchy and all points in between. The treble control can produce a very wide, very usable response that is brilliant, yet smooth without any brittleness. Pulling up on the volume knob engages the proprietary Slap Switch, a special EQ contour made just for slap-style playing. See website for frequency response charts.
On board Tone Circuits for adding tremendous tonal versatility. Enables the player to add to subtract EQ at center frequencies voiced specifically for electric bass. They feature low noise, low distortion and high headroom. Useful for all musical styles and genres.
Use together with Basslines' replacement pickup for Music Man bass. Includes all necessary mounting hardware: high-quality potentiometers on pre-wired harness; battery clip; stereo jack; and black anodized, knurled, dome-style knobs.
Fully functional, and only lost about 1/8" of wire from the uninstall, so you should be set for most applications. Wire is cheap and easy to add if you need it though.
