The MMTW is a direct replacement for the Music Man large profile bass pickup.
Inside the MMTW are two independent pickup tones.
One is a ceramic and steel humbucking pickup that gives players an incredibly rich bass tone. The wide spread bobbins combined with a large coil surface gives this mode a big bass sound. In the single coil mode, via a push/pull pot, the MMTW becomes our J pickup, with detailed presence and a strong mid-range character. EMG's active preamp makes either mode rich with harmonic content and whisper quiet. This is a great alternative to the stock Music Man pickup and it comes with EMG's solderless wiring and pots.
When using two of TW Pickups in the same instrument it is not recommended that our BT or BQ Systems be used.
Each pickup requires a push/pull pot for switching from single coil to humbucker, 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 added head room and dynamic response of the X Series preamp gives players an active pickup with the feel closer to a passive.
