Have a listen to this track: TRACK
Audio Quality is youtubish (poor) but good monitors or headphones will help. This is a long defunct band, and the only thing I have to go off is a studio pic from this album being tracked in the UK, showing the bassist playing some sort of custom with a MM / J configuration plugged straight into the board. Listening to the track it sounds like he's running the MM in singlecoil for a more J-bass type of tone.... but I cant get this kind of sound from my Lakland DJ.
I have a new (!!!) Brubaker Brute SC5 and I'm in teh middle of upgrading it. My options for the bridge are limited, as it's the "long" musicman style pickup, and the body will not accommodate the offerings from SD or EMG. So it's Bartolini, Delano, or one-off custom as far as I know.
Anyone care to render an opinion? Pole slugs or bar type? Ferrite or ceramic? Neo? Series or Parallel for the dual coil bride? Bridge and Neck wired series or parallel when the bridge is run in singlecoil?
