Seymour Duncan SMB4A Bass Pickup
While many bass humbucker pickups are able to work with a wide range of instruments, Seymour Duncan’s Music Man SMB4As are a bit more specific. These pickups are designed for use with the stock Music Man pre-amp and selector switch intended for a 3-coil system. The Alnico magnets are wired together with a distinct setup that extends the frequency spectrum, much greater than what you would get with a ceramic magnet version of the pickup. This results in a warmer low end and more articulate and detailed high end. The midrange also has more of a bite that makes it ideal for funk, blues, rock, and other styles that need to have some grit but not get too harsh.
