I just purchased a 6-month old Shen SB88, and am very happy with it (Upton setup). However, I don't like the feel of the Helicore Pizzicato Lights that came with it. I would prefer something with a softer feel on my fingertips, but with a full, slightly "old timey" sound. True guts are out of my price range, but I'm considering things like the Zyex, Velvet or Innovation. UB is new to me, but I've been playing EB for too many decades, and love the Rotosound RS66's on my Jazz bass and Steinberger fretless, especially for their musical expression. My SB88 has the Full Circle pickup, which sounds great so far. Any comments from others with Shen or similar instruments? Thanks!
