    Hey folks,

    So for the past two years I've been experimenting with hot output Pbass pickups, and after tonight's practice, I think I may be fed up with them?

    I've tried a ton and have loved MFD's the most, I adore the heaps of low end they give and how full they are and want to try to keep some of those aspects but I think it's time to try something less hot and perhaps save my love of hot things for my food tastes (hehehe I'm not funny...). I use a lot of effects and am pretty tired of overloading half the dirt pedals I try and really don't want to use a comp or clean boost or etc to tame the high output pickups.

    The SPB-2's seem to get a lot of love on here, compared to the MFD's, are they not as hot but still full?

    If we can try to keep this thread within the vein of the SPB-2's output vs the MFD's output I'd appreciate it.

    The SPB-2 has a fatter tone, and a little more output than a typical P-Bass pickup. The G&L MFD has more output than the SPB-2.
