Excellent choice for RHCP tones as recorded in One Hot Minute
OsBassZen, 22.02.2020
Excellent choice for RHCP tones as recorded in One Hot Minute. I had a sterling ray35 some years ago and I got tired of the tonal range of the Alnico MM pickup installed in it (there's a midrange freq that is great, but not really nice to be used in all genres). Ended up selling it. Years later I tried the cheaper Sterling Sub (4 strings) and noticed that the tonal range was the one I liked. These have the ceramic magnet, which I liked better. Decided to install this EMG and I'm the happiest bass player ever! Excellent choice for clean and od. Does.it.all!

Love this PUP
Steve696, 28.05.2013
The EMG MMTW is just what I needed. I replaced a P style piuckup with a bit of extra routing. The sound is fantastic, in full humbucking mode the tone is super fat, combining the powerfull thick bass needed to back up a big band with the mids and highs to the sound from getting muddy. Ideal for banging out a powerfull bass line. But that is not the end of the story, switch to single coil mode (although there are still technically two) and the sound thins a little to give a subtley to the sound. In this configuration you basically have a Jass neck pickup. Jumping between the two is a matter of pulling the provided push pull pot.

In short the best PUP ive ever had.

Very good product
Heaventeo, 07.01.2019
This was purchased for my bassist's Korean Ibanez sr bass to replace the stock no name pickups. Day and night! Round note, presence and attack. Good for the 80's metal we play. Now my bassist don't want to buy another more expensive bass.
