    I have a cheap Hammer/Slammer bass right now and instead of buying a new bass could I change pickups and get a deeper tone out of it. It now sounds almost like a deep guitar. I like a real deep sound, is it going to happen with this bass. I have tried different amps and it just isn't there.

    Thanks,

    Try pickups that are geared to a more vintage sound, like Seymour Duncan Antiquity pickups. I think those would cover the sound you want, as I understand it.
