Designed as a replacement for MM Factory type Bass Guitars. Featuring full Earth shielding & 10 individual Hand Scatter wound, (reverse wound, reverse polarity), matched coils . The Pickup is very quiet in operation with an absolute minimum of cross talk between strings.
Wired directly as a full Humbucker , the pickup has a near transparent bass response , giving a precise, full & detailed tone. Wired as 2 pseudo single coils, produces a slightly brighter response with a sweetness , exceptional clarity & definition with minimum noise.
This pickup is suited to higher quality Instruments as the tone woods used in a Bass Guitar play a big part in the overall tonal qualities with a pickup of this type fitted..
Connects directly to the MM factory electronics or can be wired passively.
PLEASE NOTE: The 10 coil pickup sits deeper in a Bass Guitar than a standard MM type Humbucker . Instruments require a pickup cavity with a minimum 26mm depth to use the 10 coil pickup. To use this type of pickup in a standard Instrument, may require a reworking of the pickup cavity to a greater depth, this pickup is highly suited to hand made Bass guitars & Franken-Basses using existing Necks & Bodies of a high build quality.
