Bigman 5

2 Big Singles in a MM shell

This pickup is the result of a questionable hair brained idea.

Named after the fellow that had said hair brained idea (and the very imposing nature it possesses) the bigman pickup is not a subtle animal in the least.

Take a music man style cover and jam 2 big single pickups into that cover.

Don’t bother using shorter magnets or less wire – just go for it!

Lakland ® larger shape with wide spacing and screw ears. These will fit in Lakland ®, and other basses with wide spacing.

This pickup has spacing measured over the pickup from center B to center G string of 73.5mm.

Alnico III magnets differ from Alnico V in that they are warmer with a softer character.

Think of them like a 60's J style sound taken even further down the warm and fat path.

Alnico V by contrast is brighter, cleaner and punchier, and will have a more wiry, stringy character.

As another example, we’d recommend Alnico III for fretless or a fat 60's jaco type thing and Alnico V is great for a modern slap style or a great R & B sound.


  • Length = 4.60"(116.8mm) Width = 1.90"(48.3mm)
