The NYC Bass pickups are the same thing that we’ve been making for some of the world’s finest handcrafted basses. They each use a dual coil J-type pickup design with a double row of Alnico Pole pieces. The resulting pickups provide a more organic tone and they are very versatile without sacrificing output level and power. They give a very even balanced response up and down the fretboard all without any unwanted noise. They come standard with 4-conductor cable so you can wire them up in multiple configurations:
Parallel: You’ll get a thicker, hum-cancelling single coil sound.
Series: Maximum punch and fullness with hefty output.
Single-coil: You’ll get that true vintage Jazz bass sound.
These soapbar sized pickups are a direct retrofit for those with a bass that uses 4-string EMG® 35 or a 5-string EMG® 40 and are available individually or in a calibrated neck and bridge set. Now available from your favorite Seymour Duncan dealer.
