    Can anyone recommend a set of passive J pickups that would work well with a 5 string fretted bass with no preamp?

    Dimarzio makes 'em in two flavors. Carvin makes some that might work depending on how wide your string spacing is. Bartolini also makes them. I think there are probably others, but I can't think of any at the moment.

    (Seymour Duncan) Basslines 67/70 and 70/74 passive
    single coils. The numbers refer to the string spacing in
    millimeters for the neck and bridge pup resp. (B to G -
    centerline to centerline). About $130 / set.
