    I don't recall being impressed by the set I had but I've heard some good reports. So nothing that would indicate a probable thumbs down. You can read the Dimento J pup experiment to catch my impression.

    Pup recommendations to me are sketchy as there are too many variables: player, rigging, strings, acoustics of the bass, style of play, on and on....... But you can narrow the playing field and that helps.

    At any rate, in my experience, a rearly toastie pup is hard to find. You just have to try 'em and see. Even like pups won't necessarily sound the same, machine-wound or not.
