Is the Stingray pickup supposed to be microphonic?
Bass in question is a 2021 Stingray Special 4H. When I tap on the pickup cover, or scratch on it with my fingernail, the sound is transferred through the amp. Same when giving the body of the bass a good thump. It’s not full on microphonic like a vintage single coil…no hissing or squealing or anything like that, and really isn’t that obtrusive. I’m just wondering if this is normal behavior for a Stingray? Is the pickup wax or lacquer potted? I researched and wasn’t able to find the answer either.
In comparison, the pickups on both of my American Fenders are dead silent.
