new P Bass Pickup for my G&L SB-2

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by toddtodd, Jun 8, 2005.

  1. i am interested in getting a new pickup for my G&L. i have read the G&L's dont have as much "thump" as most p-pickups.
    also this pickup is way too hot for me.
    on my new sunn 1200s w/ the -6db pad on, i can only run the pre amp at 1.5 !

    so i want a vintage style thump? (maybe you could describe this for me more) Pbass sound.

    help me out!

    I have a Nordstrand NP-4 pickup in my MIA Standard P-Bass. It has a killer vintage-style tone.

    This much is true. Just go ahead and get one. JPJ is the guy to buy from as well. He knows his bass gear, and he is a class act.

    more thump than from sb-2 you wont be able to get, maybe different but not more. Change your rig or eq settings, which would be more economical.
