    This subject has probably been covered before, but im going to bring it up again :smug: . I own a OLP MM2 bass as im to poor to afford a musicman, i think its great for the money, but would like to replace the pickup. Ive heard the Seymour Duncan and Bartolini are the best two , or are there more? I play rock, metal and occasionly punk and jazz. Any feedback or views would be much appriciated. You can respond here or send a message to Oli_g313@hotmail.com. Thanks for your time.

    welcome to talkbass!

    Yes, this topic has been covered a bunch of times before. I'd recommend using the search function in this forum using the word olp and you'll find lots of threads discussing.

    Bartolini,Seymour Duncan, Kent Armstrong, EMG all currently make 4 string MM replacement pickups. Mighty Mite also make a cheaper replacement, but IMO it's a false economy going with a pickup purely on price. Lane Poor MM pickups are IMO the best I've heard, but they're discontinued and hard/expensive to find.

    There's no bad choice between the first four I mention, just a question of what sound you're looking for.
