MTD Kingston Super 4 bass

Bass Guitar Review takes a look at this beauty from Michael Tobias Design. In addition to a 3-band active preamp, Michael Tobias includes a three way mini-switch for each MM-style pickup. In the down position the pickups are in hum cancelling series mode. In the middle position the pickups are in single coil mode and in the up position the pickups are in hum cancelling parallel mode with a slightly lower output than series mode. When both pickups are in single coil mode they are hum cancelling when the blend pot is centred. 

This bass has been kindly supplied by Bass Direct with an SRP of £749.,
