Hello all, Here's the situation. I have a fender performer bass that I'm in love with the exception of the very low amount of signal it pumps out. The stock pups are two single coils like I've never seen before. White diamond shape things. Like I said I love the design of the bass with the strange angles and narrow neck but the sound isn't usable on stage, just doesn't cut through so I must resort to the Gibson G-3 always for shows. Naturally the first thing that comes to mind is to add a preamp. However I would much rather stay passive. And of course I could get an eq pedal or boost pedal but I have a feeling that isn't going to satisfy me. What I would like to do is upgrade the pickups for a better more powerful sound. Does this sound like something different pickups could fix? So if I could get some input on different PASSIVE bass pickups/ setups that could possibly help me get the sound I need on stage. Thanks!
