Seymour Duncan Releases The NYC Bass Pickups
Like the soapbar pickups found in some of the world's finest handcrafted basses, the NYC uses the same dual coil J-type pickup design with a double row of exposed Alnico pole pieces. The four conductor cable allows for three wiring modes which provide a wide variety of tonal options: Wire the pickup in parallel mode for a slightly thickened, hum-canceling single coil sound. Wire it in series mode for high output with maximum punch and fullness. Or wire it in single coil mode for true vintage Jazz Bass® sound. The Alnico 2 rod pole pieces provide a punchy and focused tone with a natural and smooth upper midrange. Compared to an active soapbar, the tone is warmer and more organic.
The NYC design provides a more even volume with more precision and note clarity which is perfect for advanced chording. Each note will ring up and down the fretboard. For even more control, match the NYC Soapbars with an on-board Tone Circuit like the Seymour Duncan STC-3P.
This pickup is a direct retrofit replacement for either the 4-string EMG® 35 or 5-string EMG® 40. Available individually or in a calibrated neck and bridge set.
