The MM5CBC pickup has a rich, deep voice with lots of high-end clarity and warmth. When you dig in, it is responsive and growly. When you pull back, it is clear and sweet. And it’ll take any slapping and popping you want to give it. The Classic Bass series is popular with progressive, jazz, gospel, and metal musicians where articulation is critical. Without sacrificing low-end, Classic Bass pickups are sweat-proof and won’t crackle and thud when you touch them or hit them with the strings.
If you play a wide variety of music, you know you need some pro-level pickups, but you don’t want to do a big upgrade project, Classic Bass pickups are a great choice. They are passive and will work with your current electronics in most basses.
