The EMG 40DC is a powerful modern sounding humbucker for bass players looking to cut through a big loud mix. The two coils loaded with ceramic bar magnets provide punch and clarity with a crisp top end and plenty of output. This extremely versatile pickup gives players a sonic range that covers the cleanest highs right down to the dirtiest, growling lows. This model uses an extended housing that is 4 inches (102mm), perfect for five string basses. The included solderless wiring makes installing this pickup easy to do at home.

Broad Sounds

Darren /Reviewed 4/2/2014

I am using this for my 5-string Thunderbird. With just my 4-knob controls, my bass can produce a much wider range of sounds than from the stock pick-ups. I can either have them sounding smooth with finger-plucking, or with a huge attack while picking. May be too hot for jazz, though this does justice for many genres.

Need a new practice amp!!!

Nickp13145 /Reviewed 2/23/2014

Not because the amp stinks. but, the pickups are too powerfull for may amp.
The pickups them selves are Clear, punchy and cover alot of ground musically from; country, hip hop, metal, classic rock, and so on.

Of course i have the bqs (5knob) system so i cant say much about the "standard" vol/tone setup included.
Ps.
(If possable) i would recomend the bqs system. it really adds more tone choices to your bass.

Hope this helps.
