P pickups

  1. I have a p bass that I would like to tap on. I have tried to already, but the pickups aren't strong enough to produce a good sound out of it. I was wondering, what are a set of good pups that have a really high output? (I have been looking at EMGs)
  2. Probably the highest output P style pickup is the G&L SB-1 pickup. I don't know if you can buy them without getting the whole bass though! You could try the G&L site though:


    I know they do sell some of their guitar pickups separately so you might get lucky.

    Seymour Duncan HotRods or Quarter Pounders have pretty high output...

  4. An opinion...keep your P for grooving. Get a bass with a bridge pup for tapping.
