    Will this be too dark on an untreated rosewood board?
    I just got this bass on a Craigslist trade, after a good setup it plays great, but I'm not sold on the stock pups, I find them kind of dull. I was originally thinking of putting in something more midrange and throaty, but my other bass is much like that, I think I'll change this up a bit, but I'm just concerned it might not sit in a mix well. The band I'm in can be a bit busy at times (but not always), but I do get plenty of room to solo and such.
    I guess the tone I'm chasing is that of Jimmy Haslip.
    So the next question is which Barts, or other options, and to preamp or not? I'd prefer to stay passive, but open to suggestions.
    Thanks in advance

    In another thread I mentioned a used set of Dimarzio Ultra Jazz available to me locally at a good price, but that was a whole day ago and I was still thinking about something more midrange. How would these compare to Barts?
