bridge or body pickup?

Discussion in 'Amps, Mics & Pickups [DB]' started by Jacob Bartfield, Feb 27, 2002.


  1. From what I've read, it seems like pickups that attache to the body of the bass under the foot of the bridge give a warmer sound because the top vibrates more than the bridge (possibly?) I know that the realist pickup isn't that expensive, and lots of people like it. Is that my best option for getting the best sound? I was wondering what people would recommend for something no more than $200.
