Here is the original description of DELANO:

An uncompromising pickup series that combines in one single construction the two most
legendary sounds in bass history!

Part 1: J-Bass® – Single coil bridge pickup with the immortal characteristics of early 60’s pickups.
AlNiCo V magnets, classic fibre bobbin and gauge 42 wire.
Part 2: Sting Ray® Humbucker – Low resistance neck coil with 9.5 millimetre AlNiCo V magnets.
Authentic sound is guaranteed in this setting too, thanks to the specially engineered bridge J-coil:
the second MM®-coil is integrated inside.

Switching concept:
The integrated switch manager lets you get both of these great classic sounds at the touch of a toggle,
each one reconstructed exactly in its original form with all its strengths and nuances of character:
Passive function in single-coil mode, active function with the DELANO SONAR 2- or 3-band preamp
activated in Humbucker mode. The internal switching of the pickup is lightning fast, too!
For maximum sound authenticity we recommend the custom neck version of our J®-single coil
JC 4 AL/H for the neck position.
With both pickups switched on, this JJ-arrangement typically produces a noise-free output.

No trouble with treble:
The ’Hybrid’ set includes a specially designed treble pot that works as a typical passive tone control
for the J®-sounds in the passive mode and doubles as the active treble EQ in the Sting Ray® setting.
The neutral setting is located conveniently in the middle position; when switching, it’s easy to get the
basic settings you need.
