    I am looking at the EMG CS vs. DC. My bass has an Alder body w/ a Maple top. Volume - Blend - Bass & Treble controls.

    We had a long discussion about these pickups in Modulus Quantum basses in this thread:

    Modulus Quantum Pickup Configurations

    I found the CS to be a bit smoother, especially in the top end. A little warmer sounding.

    Hope this helps.

    What kind of bass are we talking here?

    I use 40CS in my custom 5 string bass,

    it sounds smooth, warmer than DCs, muted high.

    DCs sound bolder with ringing highs.

    The bass is a Dean Edge 4.
