The "Twin" version of our five string Music Man Bass replacement is know as the MM5TW. Based on our triple coil 89 Guitar Pickup the MM5TW is two pickups in one, single-coil and dual-coil, and both are totally noiseless. The MM5TW uses our popular ceramic and steel design for a nice transparent, not abusive high end along with a low-end that is just plain thunderous. Similar to our MM5CS the TW has wide spread bobbins (1 inch) combined with a large coil surface area that gives the MMTW a most amazing bass tone. The single coil pickup is the same as our Jazz Bass (J) Pickup, strong in mid-range. This is the perfect pickup if you're planning on building a bass with only one pickup in the sweet spot. The MM5TW comes with a push-pull pot that can be used as either a volume or tone control, or you can substitute a dpdt switch.
When using two of the TW Pickups in the same instrument it is not recommended that BT or BQ Systems be used. Each pickup requires a push/pull pot for switching from single coil to dual coil so the balance control included with the system can't be installed.
If you want to use the balance control, consider switching single/dual coil outputs with a DPDT toggle switch(s) instead.
The X series provide increased headroom giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMG's are renowned for. Give it a try and experience why the “X” factor is exciting players all around the world.
