    Hello guys,

    Can you tell me some pickups options for Double Bass?
    It's for Jazz, Bossa and i don't want to spend more than 100€...

    Thank you ;)

    Hey there,
    You might want to check in the 'Amps, mics and pickups' category. There's an interesting post I think it's called 'micing with a bass amp' where a few people have had great success with clip on tie microphones (me included) The whole thing cost $13. Admittedly I have only tested it with recording and got a great sound. The big test for it is tonight at a rehearsal through a pa. Otherwise for under $100 I don't think there is really a great range if dedicated db pickups to choose from. A k&k might be around that price, they are really simple to use and install.

  3. Under $100 the K&K Bass Max would do the job. Of course, as any other pickup it dependes on your bass to match and sound good.
    For a bit over 100 bucks I think Revolution Solo II (Upton Bass) is the best option.

    I've had the same bassmax on five basses now and it has always done the job. I'm sure there are better pickups but bang for the buck and 11 years on the same one has to say some thing.
