    Don't know much about different types of pick ups and I'm considering changing pick up to boost my low end.

    I have a fender jazz bass and might have a p bass too soon so Amy suggestions welcome

    Cheers

    I know quarter pounder pickups by Seymour Duncan are louder and a little bassier than stock jazz pickups, you cold try those.

    Have you tried the usual methods such as: turn up neck pickup, turn down bridge pickup, turn down tone control, vary right- and left-hand technique, pluck closer to the neck, use lighter gage strings, boost bass control on amp, turn up volume on amp, experiment with cabinet placement, etc?

    Anyways if you want to throw some money at the problem, there is a great comparison of replacement pickups here: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f38/j-pickups-discussion-comparisons-91384/

    Like Mushroo said, boost bass control on your amp. That should do it.
