Seymour Duncan SMB-4A Alnico Music Man Bass Pickup

Capture the original '70s Music Man tone with one pickup! The Seymour Duncan SMB-4A bass pickup offers extended response on both treble and bass frequencies.

The SMB-4A is a Music Man pickup that captures the feel and warmth of the originals. All the vintage '70s Music Man tone can be found in this version, which uses oversized alnico 5 rod magnets, together with unique coil windings, to 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. This is the tone that changed funk, rock, and slap forever.

Available in 4 or 5-string configurations and are drop-in replacement pickups for 4 and 5-string Music Man Stingray basses. These pickups may fit into OLP instruments as well, but check the dimensions of the pickup against the size of your OLPs pickup slot to be sure. Combine with Music Man replacement preamp for a complete setup.

NOTE: Not for use with Music Man basses that have a 3-way blade switch.

Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, this alnico Music Man replacement pickup uses oversized alnico 5 rod magnets, Forbon flatwork, 4-conductor leadwire, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal free operation.
