    Anybody tried this p/u in their P Bass? I am after an old school thump: deep but still clear. I hate having the click clack of fretting noise amplified but I also hate a muddy sound. I know I can roll off the tone control, but just checking to see if anybody has used or is using this p/u and what it sounds like.

    Have a PJ with 8S & 9J running a Bart NTCT 3 band with TI jazz flats. What can you say, they sound like Barts. But one of my favorite basses. Pretty versatile tones that works a broad spectrum of styles and rigging.

    Pick one up off ebay and try it. Don't like it, move on. You won't be out much if anything. But, if nothing else, they're dead quiet.

    Pups vary enough with what they're run through that I really don't undersand how people recommend pups so often like they do. Not to mention each person's individual taste, styles, technique, ad infinitum.

    You're not talking major surgery here so Go for it. Obviously you're ready for something different.
