Description

Details

We originally designed these pickups for one of the world’s finest handcrafted basses. The NYC 4 and NYC 5 use a dual coil J-type pickup design with a double row of exposed Alnico 2 pole pieces. The four conductor cable allows for three wiring modes for a wide variety of tonal options. Wire the pickup in parallel mode for a noise-free single coil sound with added body and weight; a balanced response that speaks with authority. Wire it in series mode for high output with maximum punch and fullness without any hum. Or, wire it in single coil mode for true vintage Jazz Bass sound. We designed the neck so you can get a hum-free tone when using one coil in the neck and one in the bridge. The Alnico 2 rod pole pieces provide a punchy and focused tone with a natural and smooth upper midrange. Compared to an active soapbar, the tone is warmer and more organic. Use our STC series of Tone Controls or any 3-way mini toggle switches to access all three voices. Or if you want just 2 options and a clean looking bass, then any standard push-pull pot will work. We include full wiring directions for all the options or see our wiring schematic on our site. Designed for 4 or 5 string basses, and available in neck or bridge or as a calibrated neck and bridge set. And fits into any bass with a standard DC 40 rout. Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the NYC 4 and 5 use Alnico 2 magnets and come with a 4-conductor lead wire.
