    I got an Ibanez SR600 in trade, and while it's a joy to play the electronics are a bit lacking. It comes with Bartolini MK1 pickups and their EQB-IIIS preamp. Honestly, if this was my only bass I'd be pretty okay with the sound, but it's lacking compared to my Peavey Millennium USA, which has a much clearer/punchier sound.

    For pickups I was considering Aguilar DCB soapbars based on the demo videos I've watched.

    For the preamp I was considering an Audere 3ZB.

    What do I replace first? Preamp? Pickups?
