Dirnt p-bass pup replacement????

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Ripper75, Dec 29, 2006.

  1. Anyone have opinions on good replacement pups for a Dirnt p-bass? I dont know much about pups in general, but I am wondering how to get a louder tone. I compared a real P-bass to the Dirnt and it was louder and really just sounded better, not to mention better craftmanship and feel. Of course I also like the sacred tone and feel of the Rickenbacker as well. But anyway, I dont have allot of money and need a good sounding bass. I think I will get the Dirnt and replace pups. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    if you wanna go WAY out there, I suggest one of Hammond's finest....

    but if you have a tight budget, you can't go wrong with SD or DiMarzio.

    If you like everything about normal P basses better, why don't you just get one?

    A Dirnt uses the same electronics setup as any other P-bass, and the pickup of a Custom Shop '59 Precision, which isn't quite the brightest, loudest thing out there. If you want to liven it up, try something like a Dimarzio Model P (personal go-to pickup) or something else a bit hotter.

    Try raising the pickup first. Proximity to the strings will help as well.

    Trust me,the DiMarzio enthralls good tone without sounding like a squealing pig.Get a Model P :D :D

    And yes, that is oil paint on my P-Bass.....Don't ask..
  6. I cant find any info on hammond pickups, that looks like it sounds good. thanks for the input on Dimarzio too.
