Carvin MM5 pickup questions.

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by kurosawa, May 5, 2001.


  1. Anyone have comments on the Carvin MM5 pickup's performance? Sonic comparison with standard MM5 pickup? Measurements with and without ears? Carvin says they can't tell me anything at all about the pickup.

    I guess you mean the HB5 that is MM style.

    That would be the FIRST thing I would rip off my 2000 model LB. I told their people I thought it was weak, and boxy, but that I find its real use is to offset the extremely scooped, transparent sound, of the strong J99.

    One of their guys said recording engineers love his. I guess they're laying down tracks for Christina Aguilera and the "monsterous" bass sound her recordings have. :rolleyes:
