SOLD MEC pickup and preamp from a 4 string 1996 German Warwick Fortress Masterman

    Selling my MEC pick-up and electronics from my 4 string 1996 German Warwick Fortress Masterman.

    $160 pay-paled and shipped in the USA. I would like to sell it all together but will consider breaking it up.

    This is an active twin jazz pick-up in one housing.
    This one:

    http://www.mec-pickups.de/?&c=35352...444282001389959557A15|D0444455001389959557A15

    The preamp consists of three dual concentric pots. A treble/bass for each pick-up and a balance/volume. It's pretty much two dual preamps. More information on the wiring can be found here:

    en/Warwick---Basses-Made-in-Germany--Fortress--Fortress-Masterman--4---5-string--Manual.html

    The pick-up has some string scratches and the gold has worn off the MEC logo. Everything works great just decided to go passive. All wires were de-soldered. Includes the battery holder and the gold knobs. I'm keeping the barrel jack and the pick-up screws.

    Thanks for looking

    Hi, I have a '95 Masterman, and have to ask out of curiosity, which replacement pickup/setup did you go with? I really like the sound of the MEC, but wondered what I would go with if I ever decided to change it out. The only company that I have found that makes a drop-in is Delano. Thanks
     
  3. I did go with the Delano. Still sounds like the same bass but I do perfer the passive tone. Each coil of the pick-up has a more useful tone to my ear. I also added a pick-up selector switch that gives me the option to run the coils in series. That's a cool new option.

    Interested in your pre amp. Bought a fretless Warwick RockBass Streamer with the weakest pickups you've ever heard, I think this might help. $?
