    Hi all,
    well I have been at pickup winding for a while now, I came up with a MusicMan style pickup that I am pretty happy with. I have it installed in one of those Sterling SUB basses... wired VOL/VOL/Tone

    I hope you all like it

    Cool stuff! The jazz alone sounds just a bit too thin for me. I definitely want to hear one of these thrown in the neck position of an HH though.

    Very cool!
    I'm surprised that the MM coil has so much of a sort-a-P-bass-like tone to it, being so close to the bridge. Is that due to its winding?
    I split an original MM pickup and the north coil sounded nothing like that.
    Your pickup definitely has quite a range.
    I'd love to hear it in an active bass....I just prefer them that way.

    Thanks Eastcoasteddie,
    a lot of it is in the magnets wire and how the wire gets wound around the magnets. I had it at the gig last weekend, and I must say i was very happy with how it worked in a band situation
