    Im wanting to go for a really thick but still present sound. Something with lots of low mid kick and bass, maintaining some high end clarity. I play metal so I want to go for a really punchy low sound.

    So the question really is, Bartolini MM pick ups or Delano MM pickups? And which preamp would you recommend?

    Thanks guys!

    By the way, what bass are you putting it in?

    I am designing a 5 string. Making it this spring and right now I am planning out components and body design. :)

    The bass is going to be a wenge/bubinga neck with an ebony fret board, a walnut body, and a ziricote top.
