best pups for a corvette fretless 5?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by birdxofxprey, Nov 28, 2006.

  1. i've had this warwick corvete fretless 5 for a couple weeks, and i'm having trouble getting the tone i want. it plays great and has a fine "feel" to it - it's a warwick...

    but i'm not getting enough output on the B and E strings, even though i've raised the pups. the G sounds a bit thin as well. the bass is a 1998, and has the standard MEC js on it.
    i've got warwick roundwound strings on it.

    any suggestions for an upgrade?
    what makes this bass's voice really sing?

    I have found that bartolini pickups really make a fretless come alive.
  3. yeah, i had barts on my last fretless and they sounded great. is there a bart pup that is a j-type single coil for a 5-string? anyone have expereince with EMGs of the same description?
