Is Dimarzio a good choice for 5 strings funk bass

  1. I am using a twin J from Dimarzio on my Parker fly but the sound is missing a punch.
    I can borrow Bartolini and Bassline pickup from the store to check with my Parker and see if I will get the sound that was missing.
    I am not certain if the slot ports for holding the pickup on Dimarzio pickups are a standard type though the length and width are (95 cm).

    Does anyone have the experience?

    I thought of getting a split coil type instead of single. Is this a good choice? How about the stack? I have no idea what it is like to be hornest !

    my Dimarzio Ultras have tone for years in my Benavente. Are you putting them through a pre?
  3. Yes James, The bass came with onboard pre in conjunction with Fishman Piezo pickup. I am assuming that the pre did not alter the tone off this pickups too much because the cercuit is so simple but I am more happy with natural toning anyway.
    I thought of replacing it with Batolini 59J 1. How about that.
    Thanks for your concern.
