Looking for new pups

  1. I have a Carvin B5 bolt-on bass since 3 months, with H50S stacked humbuckers... i wanted a good tonal range, but in the other hand, i find them too mellow... i rather a fatter and aggresiver sound, i didn't make a good choice with these pups, i should have ordered the HB pickups instead... anyways :meh:

    So now, i'm looking for new pickups, active, J sized, with a fat and aggressive sound, with strong low and low mids, and a LOT of punch, without being too bright. i looked at bartolini's 59J pair, it seems to be good... does anyone know these pickups, or have heard about it? or have another recommendation?

    thanks in advance
