    want to know opinions on dragonfire precision pickups. have seen a few good reviews, but respect this rooms opinion. blacktop jazz bass, needs 2 pickups. should i get different resistance pickups to play at equal volume?

    1. If my bass was worth upgrading, I would not choose dragonfire pickups. I'd save for a good set from a well respected source.

    2. Selecting 2 different inductance measurements will be a crapshoot at best whether it will get you identical output from each position.

    3. Theres more to pickups than inductance. Theres magnet type and strength, shape of the coil... etc...

    4. You are not likely to find 2 identical model brand pickups offered in different inductances unless you have them custom wound.

    I think some dragonfire pickups are active; from what I've seen on ebay. Double check but I think that is the case. You would need to find room for the battery and make sure you use the 25k pots the supply

    FWIW- I read this

    Some people really hate the idea that inexpensive pups can sound good. It really messes with the snob mentality!

    I have the passive PJ set and love them! They are pretty loud and sound great IMO
