Pickups / Preamp for J Bass Project
I looking into doing a Warmoth J Bass project. Pickups have to be a shape that Warmoth can route. I'm liking the Nordstrand Dual Coil Soapbars or the Fat Stacks. For the preamp, I'm thinking Mike Pope Flexcore.
Any experience with these? Better suggestions?
EMG, Nordstrand, Seymour Duncan, Aguilar, Carvin, Wilkenson (ick) Delano, and Bartolini and of course, Fender. In the end, my favorite configuration is a J style pickup, either a single coil or a stacked or side by side hum bucker, but the shape is your typical "J" pickup. I find most side by side humbuckers (in parallel) too dark in the upper mids. There is no right or wrong.
What's my "go to" ? I've built 4 or 5 Warmoth Jazz basses (all 5'ers) and my Korina Jazz with passive Barts (side by side hum bucker) is my default bass when I really need to sound like "me". Incidentally if you search for Warmoth threads you'll find some pretty interesting tidbits. Cheers.
Bumping this thread for some more input.
