    Hi I'm thinking about switching to MMX, I know that it's bright and sits in a mix nicely but... How it sounds compared directly to MM stingray 4 (alnico) stock pickup...
    It's brighter but does it mean it has got less bass than original?
    Let's go thru basic ferquencies....
    In my opinion stock pickup is:
    bass :6
    lo mid:6
    hi mid:5
    treble:4

    of corse you may have a different opinion about the stock's sound. All I want to know is the idea of the proportion of basic MMX frequencies, and if is it less bassy than original.

    Or maybe someone is able to record some samples, whitch would be awsome.

    I buy Barts from Brian/BestBassGear. He's extremely helpful and if you end up without getting the needed informations I'd suggest to drop him a line.
    I've been looking at the MMX series myself but never got that model as my basses tend to be very bright even with the "deep tone" MMC model :rolleyes:
