I’d do a reverse for the bridge pickup. Otherwise the d and g strings get too thin for me.
As the D and G strings are very robust sounding on the 'main' neck pickup, I was contemplating whether it would be nice to add some sizzle to the high end by rolling in a bit of the (potential) bridge pickup.
I really appreciate all of your suggestions. I am contemplating all the options. Perhaps TOO obsessively.
wow... such darkness... can't really see her, so here's another pic...
she's enormous in every way... Active preamp, likely outweighs most Peavey T-40's, has a thick p-bass neck profile... but man oh man the tone... I keep going back for more. Growl for days, thick and meaty bass, mids are right, highs are sweet... dual P is definitely my favorite config.
Just finished this guy up yesterday! Sounds Amazing!
Nice! I like the Reddy Kilowatt and are those G&L MFD pups?
Yeah, they are G&L MFD's... The thing has some serious growl.
Saw a player last night at a show who had this cool late 70's-early 80's bass - a Renaissance
I'll have an Alien Audio double P short scale to add in a bit. Have an order in for a new bass.
I have a Reddy Killowatt lapel pin (same as your tie clasp) - can't locate it at the moment but it's somewhere. A friend found a full card of them in an antique shop years ago - probably promotional material for General Electric employees.
Can you draw a comparison between it and Duncan Quarter Pounders? I have an MFD-P pickup I’m thinking of installing into a P/J. The QP’s were too overpowered and effectively blotted out the Fender Super 55 bridge pickup, which is no easy feat given how beefy those Jazz pups are.
I have a double G&L MFD'ed BC Rico Eagle... loudest bass I have ever owned!
Fender Elite II, and yes they are recessed.
the mfd's would do to the qp what the qp does to the super 55...
Gratuitous pic of my (medium-scale) double-reverse-P...
(yes, hard to see but that's blue sparkle-flake lacquer...)
Eeek! I'll still give them a try, but if you're correct I'll probably have to switch back to an older P-pup.
Thanks for the input!
you could the other way and put an mfd single coil in bridge position. than you can put whatever p pickup you like into the bass and it won't overpower anything
Ive only briefly heard the QP's. From what I can remember, they both have pretty high output with the G&L possibly being hotter. My G&L's are as loud as my active EMG's and actually require me to pad my amp input to keep from clipping.
Sound wise, the G&L's win hands down. They retain much more clarity and bite compared to the QP's which almost sounded muffled or muddy. The G&L's can be very piano like in their tone depending on the strings and offer more growl with less mud if that makes sense.
Nice! My grandpa was an electrician and I somehow ended up with it... Really dont know the story behind it.
This is my personal bass...
Double P's are one of my favorite set ups.
