    hi there
    i started playing db recently
    and my bass does not sound great
    so i am looking for a pickup to amplify it
    through the amp
    but i don't want to spend too much on it
    and i haven't got the slightest idea of which to buy

    besides, here where i live it's hard to find one
    so probably i will buy it at ebay or something

    How cheap is cheap?

    I just installed a K&K Bass Master Pro on my bass, and I like it a lot so far. I actually can hear the notes thru my Contra amp, which wasn't always the case with my Realist/Underwood pickup combo. They have lots of different setups in various price ranges. Buy it from Bob Gollihur; best price, best service, best support.
