    I'm ready to purchase a new bass (Bassmod) but I'm not sure which set of pickups I want. What are your thoughts opinions and experiences with Aguilar, Bartolini and/or USA Kent Armstrong?

    Just about everyone goes Bartolini or I've heard ppl say "anything out of Bassmod is good". I guess I'm looking for comparisons and descriptions in sound and out put. I've never played Aguilar or K. Armstrong pickups. Thanks for your responses and help in advance!!

    Every one of those brands makes different pickup models that sound different.

    Based on single coils maybe? Is there a strong distinction that cause ppl to go one way or another? Brighter, darker, output or build quality and so on......

    Why are you limiting your choices to those three?

    Well, it's not by choice... They are already inside of the Bassmods I was considering to purchase.. I cut my search down to 3 that I like and they have these pups in them.

    Heard a sound clip of some Aguilar pups and they were awesome in detail.. the name stands strong! So, the poll between Ag's Barts and the K. Armstrong pickups should be pretty interesting
