    Hi All,
    I have a homebuild 5 string with narrow string spacing (17mm center to center) and wants to replace the EMG 40HZ that used on bass.My quesion is which one will be better on my bass ? Is Bassline NYC-5 or Nordstand DC-40 ? They're both EMG 40HZ shape and close price in BestBassGear ($245& $249).
    Someone say that Bassline NYC-5 were used by Fodera,is it really ?
    Which one you'll chose ? Any recommend are welcome,Thanks!!

    Sorry! I got to BestBassGear website to look at Nordstrand pickup and that DC 4 Set - EMG®40 ($249) is for 4 string.The 5 string is DC 5 Set - EMG®40 and need $315!! Too expensive to me.

    Just a free bump, as I can't be of much help. I think the Duncans are too new for people to have tried them. I am interested in comparisons as well.
