6 string bass humbucker pickup based on our popular ( The Late ) Jimmy Lloyd Rea signature 4 and 5 string MM bassbucker. Jimmy is in the Blues Hall of Fame and has played with the likes of BB KIng, Muddy Waters etc so when it comes to a great sounding bass he really knew his thing about bass tone and punch.
This pickup has a resistance of 16 kOhm but more importantly puts out a massive 12 Henries of inductance, the true measure of the the power of a pickup. Its a huge amount of power and kick from a pickup
Unlike a lot of heavily overwound pickups, both bass and guitar, by careful winding and magnet matching the pickup has wonderful low frequency responses without sounding dull and lifeless.
As this is a 4 wire output harness pickup you can switch it from series to parallel or coil cut it down to a single coil mode which will enahance its treble responses and increase the tonal options.
The wiring harness colour codes go like this.
Black = start / negative of coil 1
White = finish / positive of coil 1
Red = start / negative of coil 2
Green = finish / positive of coil 2
The pickup comes pre-wired in series with the red and white wires, that link the two coil banks, ready joined. The pickup is also wax potted and resin sealed.
Physical measurements are as follows.
Overall size, excluding the 3 mount holes is 105mm x 48mm and 20mm overall depth.
Overall string span is 75mm across the centres of the non adjustable 10mm diameter pole slugs.
