Sadowsky Single coils and preamp
I've installed the Sadowsky SCs and preamp on my Carvin SB5000, and I am not diggin the tone as much.
I was looking for the Marcus Miller-ish growl and hi-fi tone. Instead, these pups sound kinda dirty (warm, if you will). The Nordie NJ5s (70s wind) I had previously installed sounded similar but with muted yet aggressive highs.
So is my understanding of vintage tone just incorrect? Or is it my bass that doesn't work well with these pups?
