    Any one out there who recently purchased a MIM 5 string Jazz Bass w/standard ceramic pups, who switched 'em out with MIA Alnicos & heard marked improvement on the low B?

    Also, did the alnicos sound beefier with out sacrificing highs?

    Depends on what you like. But personally for me they are night and day. Less harsh in the high's. More complex and refined with a stronger fundamental.
