    Hey all, getting a new Custom bass built. NT Maple center, Ebony stringers/Black Limba wings, bound Ebony board. I am looking for a different sound (all my current basses are double p set up), so I decided to use a MM set up. Looking for recommendations for the pre-amp and pickup (I prefer covered pole pieces, so EMG or Barts are what I am leaning towards). I am looking for a nice growly sound with strong mids. I play classic/speed metal finger style and am also trying to branch out into using the bass as a solo instrument. My current rig is a SVT-4 Pro into a Carvin 4 x 10 cab. Thanks in advance for the recommendations.
