The NYC 5 is a Passive EMG 40 Size Dual Coil pickup with a double row of exposed Alnico pole-pieces.

The four conductor cabling allows for a wide variety of wiring modes for different tonal options.

Wire the pickup in parallel mode for a noise-free single coil sound with added body and weight. Parallel produces a balanced response that speaks with authority.

Wire it in Series mode for hight output with maximum punch and fullness.

Wire it in Single Coil mode for true vintage Jazz Bass sound.

The Alnico II rod pole-pieces provide a punchy and focused tone with a natural, and smooth upper midrange.

Compared to active soapbars, the tone is warmer, and more organic.

This pickup set is intended for 2.752"(69.90mm) spacing measured over the neck pickup, and 2.888"(73.36mm)measured over the bridge pickup center of E to center of G string

Please check the physical size of the pickups you want to replace to make sure the replacements fit properly.

    Seymour Duncan Basslines NYC-5 Set

    Just connected these pickups in combination with a by Mike Pope himself special build internal Fodera pre-amp. The fun is that these combination is installed in my Alembic Signature EVH 5 string Buckeye Burl bass. The result is amazing.
    Normally the Alembic is equipped with signature electronics and Axy pickups. Also not bad, but not to compare with this stuff.
