DELANO MC series humbucking pickups are fashioned in the popular MM Stingray™ double coil pickup shape They feature a very wide string sensing area and come in many special versions to offer the widest possible range of tonal colors for todays demanding bass players.
Two rows of strong 9.5 mm diameter alnico 5 magnets and two custom coils produce a fat and grinding bass humbucking tone that also sounds great in single coil or parallel modes. Very warm bass and low mid response, accentuated mids and bright percussive top end make the MC4 AL a great choice for one pickup instruments where versatility is the key factor.
Its full range moderate output design interacts great with onboard active electronic circuits and it still has enough punch and clarity when used in full passive operation.
Please check the physical size of the pickups you want to replace to make sure the replacements fit properly.

Easy upgrade for my 1992 MM5

I have to say the Delano is closer to the original MM5 PU sound that I wanted, and has the tonality I prefer.
Excellent replacement pickup

Delano MM Alnico is killer
By Dave from on 4/16/2016
IMO the best MM for modern sound, FE version is closer to vintage, so mixing them in $$ might be a key.
Way better than BassLines that I didn't like at all and total muct for replacing lousy MEC pickups in Warwicks.
Bass sings now.
