Hi everyone. I've recently ditched the preamp in this bass as I didn't like the way it coloured the tone, however the tone is now what Is call sterile (there's that word), or maybe lack lustre is a better description. My pickup choice is a little limited as at this stage I don't want to do any routing. Dimarzio Area J and Ultra J will fit, so will Sadowsky. Not sure of any others. The tone I am after is as close as possible to my main bass that has a Dimarzio DP126 PJ set. Definitely has more prominent mids and low mids. Would like to keep the setup passive too. Any suggestions appreciated.
