Seymour Duncan SMB-5A Musicman 5 String Bass Alnico Pickup


When adding a low B (or lower) on a ‘vintage’ tone pickup, sometimes the voicing can get lost. With this 5-string alnico MM replacement, we kept all the organic warmth and added some top and low end bump. The oversized alnico 5 rod magnets, together with our unique coil windings deliver an extended response at both the treble and bass ends of the frequency spectrum. Compared with the ceramic version, this pickup is both warmer on the bottom, and more detailed on the top, which means more authentic 70’s Stingray vibe. The perfect way to turn what would normally be 4-string vintage tone territory into your 5-string playground.
