Seymour NYC Bass Bridge 5-String

Like the soapbar pickups found in some of the world's finest handcrafted basses, the NYC 4 and NYC 5 use the same dual coil J-type pickup design with a double row of exposed Alnico pole pieces. The four conductor cable allows for three wiring modes for a wide variety of tonal options. Wire the pickup in parallel mode for a noise-free single coil sound with added body and weight; a balanced response that speaks with authority. Wire it in series mode for high output with maximum punch and fullness. Or, wire it in single coil mode for true vintage Jazz Bass® sound. The Alnico 2 rod pole pieces provide a punchy and focused tone with a natural and smooth upper midrange. Compared to an active soapbar, the tone is warmer and more organic.

Complete setup 
Available individually or in a calibrated neck and bridge set. For even more control, match the NYC Bass with an Tone Circuit like the Basslines STC-3P. You'll get three bands of bass-focused active EQ and a proprietary Slap Switch.


The 5-string bridge pickup is designed for basses with string spacing of 74mm and the neck pickup is designed for string spacing of 70mm (measured center of low B string to center of G string).
