I have a 1978 Precision Bass and play 55-75 dates a year as a "weekend warrior" in a variety of bands and genres. Nearly all of my gigs are with P.A. support and on over half of those I go ampless (SansAmp Bass Driver to board) with IEMs. Remaining gigs are covered with a 150w 112 combo DI'd to the P.A. I have come into a small sum of cash and am wondering which would be the better investment to improve my live sound: 1) Upgrade my pickups. My P-Bass has an EMG active PJ set dating back to the late 80s. It looks like $250 could fix me up with a nice set of Nordstrom passives with a little left over to go toward installation. 2) Buy a SansAmp Para Driver to replace my Bass Driver. The BDDI sound is pretty close to what I want but it's not QUITE "there" and from what I've seen the mid-EQ on the Para would get me there. My thinking is that the SansAmp would improve my sound on my high-profile gigs (which are with my "main" band), but the pickups would pay off on every gig I play. OTOH if I don't like the sound of the pickups I'm pretty much screwed whereas the Para Driver would be easily returned or re-sold if it doesn't work out. Thoughts?
