Several years ago I bought a used Warmoth Gecko 5 string . I came equipt with two soapbar pickups made by Gotoh , yeah the tuning gear people . I'v grown to greatly dislike them . They seem to have a very thin sound with a lot of mids . I really like the bass and hate to part with it . How much will changing the pickups , change the sound of my bass ? Anyone have any suggestions ? Is anyone familiar with the EMG active soapbars ? The guy I bought the bass from got these Gotohs through Warmoth several years ago , and I know Stew-Mac used to sell them . I'm just not digging them .
