The MMSR 3 Knob 3 Band has been designed with characteristics very similar to the original MM Stingray 2 Band EQ, in order to retain the same interaction between the MM pickup and the electronics, crucial in creating the original pre EB sound colours. Our circuit additionally has separate stages for the bass and treble, allowing us to further enhance and extend the bass control. The Bass and Treble are stacked which allows inclusion of a Mid Sweep, along with original MM style bass and treble on a 3 knob plate. When the Mid boost/cut is centred, its effect is neutral and the EQ is purely late 70s MM style.
Single Knob – VOLUME
Stack Knob – Late 70s MM style BASS / TREBLE / Pull for BRIGHT (Bright is similar to Sabre bright toggle, but has a little more boost)
Stack Knob – MID / MID FREQUENCY SWEEP (Mid Sweep 01 unit)
his unit is supplied fully wired with 1 single and 2 stacked pots including knobs, Switchcraft jack plus battery clip, which may be spliced into an existing battery box, as would be available in most MM style basses. There are screw terminals for the pickup connections for easy installation and a ground wire is provided to connect the bridge and any other grounding points/screening. Out of the box, just connect the pickup, snap on a battery, plug into a rig and you have sound, but remember that the grounding connections are crucial in attaining a solid installation.
The MMSR 3 Band can be supplied with or without a plate, but our plates will fit only SUBs and OLP basses. It will be necessary to use the existing plate on a standard MM bass.
NOTE: The MMSR 3 Knob 3 Band without plate, is suitable for the MM Sabre too. The Bright function is a pull on the Treble pot.
