    I was given a Karl Kania electric upright bass, but I was a little dissapointed that the amplification for is was no more than a fishman double bass pick up. What I would like to do is find a bridge that is also the pick up , which is what I thought was normal for electric uprights If anyone has any suggestion as to companies that make the pickups or other suggestions it would be great

    I already have the bridge, so what are some suggestions for some good pickups. I want to run a jack into the body becasue now there is nothing but a piece of wood with and double bass pickup on it

    A lot of EUB makers use off the shelf pickup systems simply because they are in the business of building basses, not pickups. Many offer various pickup options.

    Look at the NEWBIE links in this section of the DB forum. Start with (All Hail) Bob Gollihur's page.

    Look here:
    At the bottom of the page, there's a Replacement bridges section.
    Look at the Ashworth AJ401. It may be what you're looking for... :)
