    From playing Music Man Stingray 5 basses I love their sound by far over any other active bass i've ever played. They have the same high output, bright sounds, and clarity that I guess are characteristics that all the active basses i've played share, but the Stingrays seem different to me though, they have such a warm smooth sounding low end, so much more than any other active basses i've ever played.

    I noticed EMG makes pickups for those basses in two models, the MMCS and the MMTW. From the descriptions on the EMG site about them both it seems that my preference of the two would be the MMCS.

    So I guess that brings up the question, what does the EMG MMCS pickup really sound like and how does the sound of that differ from the stock MM pickups that are in the stingrays?
