Hey everyone, I'm looking at changing my pickups for the first time ever, and I know very little about the subject. I'll give you some basic info about what I use/play etc... that might give you an insight into what I do. I'm looking for a pretty growly sound, but one that will work with slap as well as fingerstyle. My Bass (My main bass, anyway...) : Hudson PB4, Curbow designed, active electronics. Using D'Addario Prosteels, medium gauge. (Or here, if the picture doesn't show: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sebthepeters/7824370432/) My playing style: I never use a pick. I play fingerstlye about 50% of the time, and I slap the other 50%. It ranges from very aggressive metal/prog-rock to fairly mellow/chordy stuff to support a piano. When I say I play slap, I mean slap. I don't just slap a note here or there, but I don't go over the top and play 5634572927 notes a second just because. I'm not too limited on price, but if I can get something that does the job and it's cheaper than something else that does the same thing, I'm all in. TL;DR I'm looking for a pickup with plenty of growl, that will work in both heavy and funky styles.
