    I have a pair of EMG-SSD (Stuart Spector Designed) 4 string passive soapbar pickups in excellent condition. I pulled them out of a Spector Performer 4 bass that I bought new a couple of months ago. They have a great sound and are similar to the EMG-35HZ pickups. They are the same size as the HZ's (3.5 in x 1.5 in)

    I wrote Spector customer service to find out the difference and similarities between the EMG-SSD vs. the EMG-35HZ. Here is an exact quote of what the customer service rep responded:


    "EMG-SSD
    -pickups are made in China, like the bass.
    -designed for us by EMG
    -passive, humbucking design
    -a little darker sounding vs. EMG-HZ

    EMG-HZ
    -pickups are made in EMG’s factory in California
    -designed and built by EMG
    -originally made just for us in the 90’s!
    -passive, humbucking design
    -EMG’s passive version of their active humbucker, so
    -the tone is brighter than our EMG-SSD pickup.

    Quality is about the same."

    $40 (this includes shipping) and their shipped to your door anywhere in the lower 48 states of the US ONLY.

    If interested, send me a PM or an email at mindriot3@hotmail.com

    Thanks!!!
