Direct Mount DiMarzio® D Activator 8™ DP720 / DP719 Humbucking Pickups
This versatile humbucking pickup combination provides powerful modern sound for bass players looking to tame the higher frequencies and cut through a big, loud mix. The EMG35DC bridge pickup covers the cleanest highs right down to the dirtiest, growling lows, while the EMG35CS neck pickup provides warmth and punch with a smooth top end and plenty of output. EMG's BQS preamp makes this big-sounding active pickup quiet when it's not being played.
