This is our fivestring alnico MC5 AL humbucking pickup.

Ten large individual Alnico 5 magnets create a large sensing field for a big and solid fivestring tone with strong transients and great definition. Two XL size coils are custom blended for tight bass response and warm low mids that will stay focused even with complex playing and massive sound shaping, plus a some raw top end grind to give you a good amount of cut and a definite R&B vibe. Switching coils to parallel mode gives a bright and clean highendish voice to your bass that is great for clean funk, chords and tapping.

Delano MM Alnico is killer
By Dave
It is not easy to improve over Nordstrand or Aguilar MM pickups that I used in my Stingrays and Corvette $$. Still, although nicely voiced to ressemble vintage PUs, both missed articulation on the deepest notes and suddenly someone turned my sight to Delano, not much known in the US pickup winder. Wow. This is sound I've been looking after. Specially with Warwick Corvette, this adds dimension to already high standard sound of $$. Love smooth highs of Delano PUs, no aggression, but no lack of distinctive tone.
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.
