Awesome pick ups

By P. Muzi Branch

from Richmond

Comments about EMG-40DC Dual Coil 5-String Active Bass Pickup:

I recently purchased a Stuart Spector Legend Classic 5 string bass on Ebay. It came with EMG-Hz pick-ups. I wasn't satisfied with the tone and volume available through those pick ups. The Legend is a low-end Spector and it list for less than $900. I own a Spector Euro5LX neck-through which list around $2800. I had two EMG-40DC's professionally installed. The difference is remarkable. The cheaper bolt-on neck legend has a sound that is comparable to the Euro LX. I played the Legend on the gig this past weekend and the sound was awesome. Remarkable tone; even the low B was clear and fat. The EMG-40DC pick ups will turn an ordinary 5 string instrument into an extraordinary one. If you own a inexpensive instrument try replacing the stock picks with EMG's. You will not regret it.

Remarkable Difference

By Frankie Aster

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about EMG-40DC Dual Coil 5-String Active Bass Pickup:

I have been a Spector guy since 1982. I own several, and HAVE owned dozens, from the $6500 model to my latest purchase, a Legend 5 Classic (which was less than $900) and everything in between. The tone from the Legend was not to my liking, so I replaced the stock pups with a pair of EMG 40DC's. WOW! The tone is no different than my expensive Spectors! Piano-like highs and mids with window-rattling lows, I don't hesitate to play this "cheap" Spector at gigs or even in the studio, it sounds that good.
