MJ: Ein Humbucker und ein Singlecoil

Circuit MJ1

There are electric basses with a mix of a humbucker and a single coil, with the humbucker usually sitting in the bridge position. The simplest circuit for this offers the following options

1. Bridge humbucker,

2. Bridge humbucker and neck parallel

3. Neck

Circuit MJ2

With a total of three coils, a Megaswitch E + enables five different combinations:

1. Bridge humbucker

2. Bridge SC outer coil

3. Bridge SC outer coil and neck parallel

4. Bridge humbucker and neck parallel

5. Neck

Circuit MJ3

This is a modification of the MJ2 circuit. In positions 2 and 3, the neck-side coil of the humbucker is active here.

1. Bridge humbucker

2. Bridge SC inner coil

3. Bridge SC (inner coil) and neck parallel

4. Bridge humbucker and neck parallel

5. Neck

Circuit MJ4

This circuit enables the pickups to be connected in series in positions 3 and 4, which increases the bass and mids and reduces the highs.

1. Bridge humbucker

2. Bridge single coil outer coil

3. Bridge humbucker and neck in series

4. Bridge single coil outer coil and neck in series

5. Neck
