Hello, I recently bought a shadow sh 965 nfx db pickup and I'm very pleased with it. It has two pickups for under each foot of the bridge and some kind of little pre amp where you can control the volume and tone by using only the pickup under the treble foot of the bridge or the bass foot of the bridge or in between. I personally think this is a very good pickup and that's why I recorded a soundclip with it to spread the love! http://www.shadow-electronics.com/viewpro.html?id=&loc=US I had it installed on my fully carved hungarian bass of an unkown maker, but it's a pretty good student carved bass. And it sounds pretty good on its own. I plugged my pickup direct into my little mark and I set the amps eq flat. That went direct into my behringer mixingboard an into my creamware luna II soundcard. I recorded with cubase sx and i added no effects or eq'ing. My playing and drum programming is not the best in the world but I think you'll get an idea of what the nfx can do. Hope you enjoy it! http://users.telenet.be/goebezig/shadowsh965midtone.mp3 ps: The volume knob is fully open and the tone knob is in the middle but turned a little bit more to the treble side.
