So I got a hold of a Grind 4 bass for Christmas and was thinking of replacing the stock pickups it came with. I saw alumitone pickups as one solution but I am iffy on those so I'm considering bartolinis of the proper size. I'm going for a balanced and clear tone for punk/funk/rock tunes and preferably in a passive setup (dunno if that makes sense lol).
What do you guys think? And should I get new pots to go with them? I know how to solder and all I just never done this sorta mod before so I'd appreciate any input
Black N Maple club #199, US Peavey club #113,Fender Jazz Bass Club #216, Passive Club #20, P-Bass Club #572, Florida Bassists Club #102, Fender Precision Bass Club #19, Lefties Who Play Righty #43
Sounds good, reason I asked about replacing the pots is that it seems one of them is loose and potentially causing some static? When I dial it back to zero the static goes away but comes back when I play it with the knob dialed full.
I have a 6 string grind and i put bart m56cbc's in it and WOW it sounded so much better. I like them a lot and they work great for my Prog metal band which show versatility because we go from really light parts to black metal and then to funk and my bass sounds great for all of them

I've been eye-balling the M34C-T-4 and B-4, they got humbuckers which help me get that clear tone. Anybody tried these? Seems the dimensions are fine but I'm not sure. I'll be home later to measure them!
Nvm lol, my pickup dimensions are 1" x 4"... Did I measure the width wrong or what because I can't find Barts in those dimensions. The width of my cutout is too short to drop in the barts I was looking at.
