    Do a google search for "pickup reviews".

    In TB "Dimento's MM pup experiment" among others.

    FWIW:

    after over 50 pup sets I'dsay pups tend to be different rather than better or worse - it just depends on other variables in the tone chain as to which one fills the bill. I kept a Carvin MM from all the ones I had - which include a Duncan SMB-D and Nord 4.2. Just worked more to my liking in one particular bass.
