    How different do the various emg pickups sound from each other...

    I have 2 x emg hbs in my bass with a BQC pre... not really digging it...

    Obviously the HB is the 35p equivalent but...

    How different does this sound to the DC / CS and the J.

    Im deliberating on ditching both the HB's and having a combination of the above...

    Alternatively imma ditch them both and get some nordys!

    The HB is the same as the P.

    The DC has a edgier tone, and the CS is fatter sounding. They are both humbuckers.

    The J sounds like a J. Its a stacked humbucker.

    Ok awesome!

    If you were to recommend some a mix of the 4 and well positions...

    What would work well together... The HB just does nothing for me really! But i love the precision pickup io have on my backup bass... tis weird!
