The EMG 40DC is a powerful modern sounding humbucker for bass players looking to cut through a big loud mix. The two coils loaded with ceramic bar magnets provide punch and clarity with a crisp top end and plenty of output. This extremely versatile pickup gives players a sonic range that covers the cleanest highs right down to the dirtiest, growling lows. This model uses an extended housing that is 4 inches (102mm), perfect for five string basses. The included solderless wiring makes installing this pickup easy to do at home.

Huge tone improvement, easy installation


Installation was pretty straight forward, and the improvement in the tone of a cheap bass was significant. I haven't had a ton of time to play with it since I installed it, but from the jump I could tell the tone of the bass had improved dramatically.
