2 Big Singles in a MM Cover
This BigMan 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! The result is a pickup that is fantastically muscular and unrelentingly powerful. Not for the faint of heart.
*BigMan now available with Alnico III (A3) Magnets
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 A3 for fretless or a fat 60’s Jaco type thing and A5 is great for a modern slap type thing or an R and B sound.
*This pickup extends 1/4″ deeper into the body than a standard MM pickup
