    I want to add second pickup in bridge position into my p-bass for more tone versatility.
    Which one would you suggest EMG 35hz or Seymour Duncan STK-J1? I m on a limited budget so these 2 are the only ones I can afford. I would avoid SJB1 and SJB2, because I can't stand any hum noise. Can anyone describe what kind of tone each one of the pickups have? I m a noob regarding pickups.
    Thanks :D

    skip 'em both!

    a dimarzio area J or ultra J will be way better for about the same money.

    Thanks for the suggestion. But there is only one DiMarzio distributor in my country and I don't see any Area J or Ultra J on their site. I 'll contact them about ordering, and hoping the price would not be higher because of that.
    Anyway, if I couldn't get DiMarzio what is better option between the EMG and Duncan?
