Hello all, I have a Kramer 8 string bass I purchased back in 82 - I have changed pickups to an Alembic model - which the model number is a distant memory. With the 8 string I get a ton of highs from the thiner strings and lack the low in balls type of sound. Can you tell me what pickups would be best for my situation. I play mostly rock and with a pick 70% of the time. And would you suggest active or passive???? Thanks - I look forward to your replies.
