When I play I get a really bad buzzing sound from my amp (And another amp I have used, both not amazing.) So I figured it was the pickups, any advice on a cheap good set of pickups for my bass?
If you don't like the sound, then looking at different pickups is reasonable.
If you are bothered by a buzzing sound... do yourself a favour and take it do a decent tech , and he will make sure your bass plays and sounds alright (at least without buzz). It will not be expensive either.
 how to find a decent tech? ask. Ask here, there may be someone on your area who can recommend one. Check online, see their reviews. Avoid the ones in large guitar stores, unless recommended by someone you trust: they are often not trained to do any more than very basic adjustments to instruments as they arrive to the shop just so they seem playable. Go to someone who does that for a living. A luthier is perfect: someone who builds fretted instruments from lumps of wood has a very good understanding of the mechanics of a guitar/bass guitar.
