    I have never considered switching out the PU's for my bass which is a kramer DMZ 5000 but have recently thought about getting a bit more low end space and clarity.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what PU's I should consider or strong argument as to why I shouldn't switch out the stock DiMarzio's?

    I don't have the same bass, but I have a Vacarro 5 string with a mahogany body that I dropped Barts into with an Aguilar preamp and it sounds great.

    As the 30+ year owner of a Kramer 650B,I'd just say that you've got a classic (valuable)bass that you may not want to modify too much.I'm not an expert but I wonder if you could keep the stock pickups and install a good preamp to help get what you want for sound?

    I have the same bass and find it hard to believe that "more clarity" is possible with those Dimarzios.

    My suggestion would be EQ - my Markbass head has a VPF filter, which between 12 adn 3 make this bass the best tone I've come across. The super booster pedal by Markbass could do the same thing for you.
