Okay so this is a follow up to an earlier thread, I recently went ahead and swapped out the emg pj's on my monarch to a dimarzio dp126 set. I had initially been thinking fralins or nordstrands but decided I didn't want to spend 200+ and had a positive experience with dimarzio in the past. So i purchase the set, the very next day I see a fralin pj set on tb and it was reasonable enough so i decided to pick it up and would do an ab between the two sets. I got the dimarzio set installed about 5 days ago and it has been outstanding. The tone is exactly what I was looking for. The emg set seemed very sterile to me, too clean no grind or grit and poor midrange presence. The Dimarzios are the polar (forgive the pun) opposite. gritter but still clear sounding. And the brightness and clarity of them really complements the warmness of the mahogany body quite well I was thinking the dimarzio set would be an improvement over the emgs but not this much and now I am wondering if the fralins could possibly be better. The only time I have ever heard a fralin set was on a lakland p bass in a GC and it sounded great but quite a bit more pronounced in the lowend and warmer and I am worried with a mahogany body it will end up sounding to warm. I know at this point I am probably nitpicking but for anyone that may have had a similar experience with fralins in an a-b situation, insight would be appreciated.
