    I have an 1997 Ibanez Soundgear SR1010. She looks great but has never really sounded all that great unless she is going through a Neve 1073 into an LA2A compressor in the studio. I am thinking of replacing the stock pickups/preamp with Delano PMVC-4 and JMVC-4 passive pickups. I don't know whether or not replacing the pickups is a good idea, but it is something I have been thinking of for a few months. Anyone have any knowledge or ideas on the matter?

    Suggestion: Listen to the tone of the instrument unamplified for a little bit, and decide whether or not you like it. If you like the unamplified tone, but not the amplified tone, then consider a pickup swap. But if you don't like the unamplified tone, then consider another bass.

    Delano makes great stuff.
