Incredible sound! Easy to install!
LunaticDestroya, 11.02.2019
Bought this pick up as an upgrade for a vintage music man clone. Very easy to follow wiring instructions. Simple to follow and no special tools required. Literally wire it up and screw the bits in.

Most importantly, the tone from this pickup is immense. I have never heard anything so thunderous. Incredible low end. The coil tap has given me versatility of sound I could only dream of.

If you have a MM or MM clone! Buy one now!

Fantastic sound, wide yet focused midrange and punchy bottom end. typical EMG clarity in both modes of coil switching.
My favourite tone is dual coil mode in the bridge position I also have the EMG BQS fitted to the bass and this dials the tone in perfect for any type of music.

I really love these solderless EMG pickups. They are so easy to install.
Sound is good and battery is still running after a year or more.

EMG = Problem gelöst
Christian930, 02.10.2017
Der Sound meines alten Yamaha Basses (BBG5A) war immer etwas unterbelichtet. Mit dem EMG an der Brücke geht wirklich das Licht an und die Sonne auf. Sehr cooler Musicman Stingray mäßiger Sound.
Die Funktion des Splitting finde ich aber etwas sehr dünn im Sound - ausserdem verliert man beim umschalten Pegel. Ist aber natürlich Geschmackssache. Für Slapeinlagen / Funkstuff reicht da aber der Bass nicht (im Splitbetrienb - daher ein Stern wech).
Also doch alles mit der Humbuckerfunktion spielen ... welche aber sehr cool klingt!
---
Edit: habe noch den MM5CS ausprobiert. Dieser funktioniert definitiv besser an der Brücke. Habe nun den MM5TW an der Neckposition - dort klingt er schön rund und der CS macht einen fetten Sound an der Brücke.
