Seymour Duncan SMB-5D 5-string Ceramic Music Man Pickup MusicMan


The Seymour Duncan SMB-5D is a 1976-voiced humbucker for Ernie Ball MusicMan® StingRay® bass. Great for blues, funk, classic rock, southern rock, jam, and hard rock. This is a direct replacement for 5-string MusicMan StingRay basses up to 1992. (note: a three-coil version is available for post-’92 5-string basses, please call for details) For some time now, the loyal legions of MusicMan bass-faithful were limited in their choice of pickups. Basslines has changed all that. Seymour Duncan listened the best MusicMan pickups over the years and distilled them into one dual coil, ceramic magnet pickup. This hum-cancelling pickup offers a highly musical tone contour with a richly articulated bottom, major midrange, and lots of treble. It’s got a nice, mild “bark” without being overly brash; and it’s not at all harsh in the mid-range. The low end is full and strong without being mushy or foggy. For best results, use this pickup with the STC-3M4 Basslines Tone Circuits for MusicMan basses. Tone Circuits offer three very usable bands of EQ coupled with a proprietary slap contour switch. Mounting hardware and detailed wiring diagram included. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable and Basslines logo cover. Basslines pickups are all hand built in Santa Barbara, California, USA. Players include Darrell Harris / Gary Puckett, Dan Lutz / Andy Summers, Roger Camero / No Motiv.
