My old trusty Yamaha TRB-JP1 (John Patitucci) has been with me for a long time. The pickups/preamp have never really blown me away, in fact, I feel something may be off (maybe why it was being sold). Anyway, I've come to the point where I've thought maybe I can replace the pickups and preamp. There are so many options, what are your favorites and WHY? I love a modern tone (think: Fodera), I don't do any slapping, and I love clarity. To compare, I also have a Warwick Infinity with MEC pickups, and anytime I record that, it's night and day how clear and defined the Warwick is. It is a 9V active bass now. And uses the thin J-style 6-string pickups (not fatter, Aguilar type). Thanks!
