Hotter pickup. Recommended for classic rock, heavy rock, funk, punk, R&B, and metal.
This hum-canceling pickup offers a balanced, highly musical tone contour with a richly articulated bottom, lots of midrange, and biting treble. It's got a nice, mild "bark" without being overly brash, and it's not at all harsh in the mid-range. The low end is full and strong without being mushy or foggy.
Generally used together with STC-3M3 and -3M4 Tone Circuits for optimal tonal control.
Replacement for 4-string Music Man® StingRay® basses from 1976 to present and for 5-string Music Man StingRay basses up to 1992. For post-'92 5-string basses, see three-coil version.
