MM SPLIT 8 COIL HUMBUCKER
A split output 8 coil pickup designed as a replacement for MM & O.L.P style Bass Guitars with 3 outputs, all in humbucking mode. Featuring full Earth shielding & 8 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.
The pickup has a near transparent bass response, giving a precise, full & detailed tone. With this extended version of our standard 8 coil, different output configurations are available on this pickup in full humbucking mode.
These outputs are as follows
1. Split-P mode, front row on strings E & A, back row on strings D & G (enhanced bass & treble)
2. Reverse S-P mode, front row on strings D & G, back row on strings E & A (lighter bass & treble)
3. All 8 coils
These 3 outputs are accessible through either 2 volume pots or a mega switch selector
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.
This pickup can be wired passively in a similar layout as a jazz bass or can be used with the factory MM electronics, using a selector switch to access the different outputs.
PLEASE NOTE: The split 8 coil pickup sits deeper in a Bass Guitar than a standard MM type humbucker. Instruments require a pickup cavity with a minimum 22 mm depth to use the split 8 coil pickup. To use this type of pickup in a standard Instrument, may require a reworking of the pickup cavity to a greater depth, please contact us for more information.
