Best metal pickup for a p bass
I have a fotoflame pbass and the pick up is not giving it what I would like. I play with a distorted sound and would love any suggestions on what you guys think would be right
Have you searched the archives?
Let's just get it over with. DiMarzio Model P, or, if your'e into the active stuff, go EMG.
DiMarzio Model P: big in the mids, grinds well, tastes great, less filling.
This guy did a comparison of a ton of precision pickups. The name of each file in this soundcloud is the brand of the pickup:
I'd also recommend stainless steels for a precision, if you're looking for an aggressive tone. Rotosound 66, Dean Markley Blue Steels, and Dean Markley SR2000 are all good options for a gritty/aggressive sound on a P.
Lastly: overdrive/distortion can definitely help with the aggression. For overdrive, I'd recommend an Xotic Bass BB Preamp; for distortion, a Darkglass B3K.
Seymour duncan Spb-4.
Check out this video, Kent Armstrong pickups. IMO, they're aggressive, big bottom but not too muddy .
DiMarzio Model P would be my choice.
Lots of players seem to like the SD SPB-3 Quarter Pounder as well, but it's way too scooped IMO to be used in metal if you like to hear yourself.
As others have stated DiMarzio Model P.
It's an inexpensive pickup too so there is not much risk in trying it out.
