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)
