    In need some EMG's that'lll cut through emg ZW's and emg HB's married to 2 marshall mode4 half-stacks in a metal band that plays like metal gods Iced Earth and I don't want to be drowned out... at all. My current bass is a LTD f-104 and i need a pickups that's got balls and enough brilliance to shine through

    Any reason why you only want EMG's? What type of pup pattern is the F-104. Humbucker? I would go with Bartolini's, or if you can find a lane poor that will fit.

    Yep they're mother'buckers; Bartolini's are too smooth for my liking, i need something that's got bite, and will rip your head off too

    EMG DC humbuckers have quite a lot of bite. A whole bunch of high end. They are loud too!
  5. If you have an active bass then Bartolini's are nice sounding.

    You should get the pickups you want to try to get the sound that you want, but the Ashdown EB 180 and the Ampeg BA115 amps in your profile are never going to compete with Marshall half-stack guitar rigs...
