    Being a newbie still to bass playing it's not obvious to me, but is there a specific type of bass/pickups/amps that will get me in the ballpark to cop this type of sound? I currrently play a pedulla with active bart, so i'm thinking maybe more of a traditional J style bass.

    Yeah sounds like a Jazz to me.

    Does your bass have a bridge pickup? From what I hear I would say favoring the bridge pickup and a new set of rounds (I'm guessing nickels) will get you somewhat close?

    Ya- fretted jazz with the bridge soloed. Great playing, not my favorite sound.

    That's Ida Neilsen AKA Bassida AKA Ida Funkhouser (I am guessing that now that she's playing for Prince, his lawyers don't want her releasing solo material under her own name). Go thru her YouTube videos to find the sound you want, then check to see what she played on it.
