For the jazz I'm building, I bought a set of dimarzio ultra jazzes. It's an alder body with a maple fretboard, and it's not completely done so I don't know how it sounds yet. The bass I currently own is a skyline 55-01. Now it's a great bass and sounds beautiful when soloed, but it's a little too sweet to cut through with a band. Also, the slap sound is very weak when compared to the fingerstyle, and I am not a hard player. If I try boosting high mids to cut through, it sounds gross and nasaly, so I usually end up cutting the high mids and boosting the low mids which sound more pleasing. So I wanted pickups with good low mids and a good cutting slap sound and I went with the ultras. But now I am reading reviews that say the ultra jazzes don't cut through that well. So I'm asking those who use ultra jazzes, what music do you play and how do they do?
