MM replacement pickup

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Ach, Mar 10, 2008.

  1. Which MM replacement pickup will sound as near as possible to modern MM Stingray4 pickup?

    I heard Nordies are pretty close to old MM pickups, but in any way, any more competitors?

    Just saw a band on Saturday that his MM had a Bartolini pup in it. He was playing through my rig, but it sounded pretty good.
  3. I am actually interested in building a bass with a pair of MM humbuckers, and need a closer tone (to Stingray) as possible

    I also know Wilkensen makes MM pickups. I have them in one of my OLP Basses. Not sure how I feel about them. They are pretty bright, but I don't play that bass much.
  6. one more question regarding MM pickup: does it low output if used without any preamp?

    i think so becuase these pups has resistance around 1.8--2.5 kOhms, pretty low i guess.

    well i´m happy with my nordstrand 4.2 its great it has all the sounds it can be vintage to modern its perfect to me...mmm ibut if you want something very hi-fi or modern i think delano is your pickup the MC4 they have the AL alnico version or the FE ceramic more hi-fi...i think the sound has to be powerfull at the low-mids that makes you have presence
