Help with pickup choice

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by fretlessspence, Feb 13, 2006.


  1. I am getting close to ordering a new bass. Pretty sure about these factors

    Elrick New Jazz Standard 5 Fretless
    1 pickup in the bridge position
    no preamp or knobs
    1 output jack on the face

    I need help picking a pickup for it.

    I don't like barts and I would like it to not have hum, but I also would like it to sound like a good single coil.

    I was thinking about an Aero but that is as far as I have gone. I like the passive sound and am not much into the Hi Fi zing. My highend is pretty low key.

    Any Help?
