What are some pickups or manufacturers that have some growl and cut to them?
I like Bartolini's for that.
I'd be inclined to say strings have more of an effect.
Can you rephrase that question with words that actually mean something?
I got it. He wants pickups with "some growl and cut to them". I'd call that "snarly". Describing tones is subjective.
Certainly G&L MFDs fit that description.
Stainless steel strings should help too. Lately I've been using Rotosound 66's along with a Hartke XL cab to get more snarl.
Strings are a good pace to to start, and are cheaper than pickups.
What bass are we talking about here anyways?
An OEM EBMM Stingray pickup is pretty darn growly. I just happend to have one for sale
I'm getting quite the snarl out of a pair GFS Ceramic MMs, passive with 500k pots. Excellent bang for the buck at $30 or so.
And this is with DR sunbeams. Haven't tried this bass with steels... yet
The neck pu on my L2000 in series with SS strings got me that "snarl".
