EMG 35DC vs 35TW
Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone could help me out...
I'm search for a replacement humbucker for my Fleabass Streetbass, and I came to either one of these:
Might as well put an Aguilar OBP-1 or 3 in it...
Now I was just wondering what the diffirence is sound-wise? (and I know the TW can be split to Single Coil, but I most likely won't use that.)
Any help would be welcome :)
If you aren't going to use the single coil function of the TW you should look into 35CS. It's the same as the TW but with humbucker mode only.
The DC is slightly brighter than the TW/CS. Personallly i like TW/CS best, but a DC as the neck position and a CS in the bridge position will give a nice compromise. Many people find the DC to be a bit too bright to be used at the bridge position.
I have no experience with the X-series, but have heard good things about them.
Now that I've read some more on the 35CS I'm more leaning towards that...
Though I'm not sure if it has the same 'punchy' sound as the 35DC?
(And if the "DC" is said to be 'too bright', can't you compansate that with rolling off the treble a bit?)
You see I'm trying to get closer to Modulus FB4/FU4 sound, what do you think?
Both are tightly focused (I use them in two different basses, both bridge positions), but I think that the CS is a bit beefier - I hear a bit less in the low mids on the DC than I do on the CS.
