The MMTW is a direct replacement for the five string Music Man large profile bass pickup. Inside the MMTW are two independent pickup modes. One is a ceramic and steel humbucking pickup that gives players an incredibly rich bass tone. The wide spread bobbins combined with a large coil surface gives this mode a big bass sound. In the single coil mode, via a push/pull pot, the MMTW becomes our J pickup, with detailed presence and a strong mid-range character. EMG's active preamp makes either mode rich with harmonic content and whisper quiet. This is a great alternative to the stock Music Man pickup and it comes with EMG's solderless wiring and pots.

When using two of TW Pickups in the same instrument it is not recommended that our BT or BQ Systems be used. Each pickup requires a push/pull pot for switching from single coil to humbucker, so the balance control included with the system can'’t be installed. If you want to use the balance control, consider switching single/dual coil outputs with a DPDT toggle switch(s) instead.

Perfect for my single humbucker MusicMan Stingray!

Joshua /Reviewed 3/4/2016

Bought this to expand the tonal palette of a MM Stingray 5, single H setup. Being able to split the coil is awesome, with the dual-coil pup retaining the awesome MM tone, yet the single coil gives you a meatier-sounding J bass pickup. Paired with the EXB bass/treble expander, I am in love with an instrument that I used to be my token 5-string, in case I needed to use the low B. Breathed new life into an otherwise utilitarian bass for me!
