    Hello everyone,

    I'm thinking about getting new pickups for both of my basses. I have a Spector Legend Custom 5 string, and a Spector NS-2000-5. The legend has EMG-HZ's in it and the NS has the general EMG's.

    I don't really have a preference to active or passive, and I play in a progressive metal band so I'll need something that can really compliment the grit, but I like to do a lot of clean ambient stuff on my own.

    I would first look at EQ and effects to get different tones.

    Spectors have a great and versatile tone right out of the box.

    Well right now I'm using an MXR Bass Compressor, into the Darkglass B7K,
    And then a MXR Carbon Copy for delay and stuff,
    All running into a Ampeg PF-500 and Kustom Deep Groove cab.

    I guess I'm just wondering what are good options for pickups, I know what people consider good brands, but with guitar the Dimarzio CrunchLab and Liquifire are obvious choices for
    A standard "good" prog sound or most BKP's if you want to
    Spend the cash. I was just wondering if there was a similar
    Set up for bass.
