    I have a Schecter Omen Extreme 5 string bass that I typically play either through a church house system or my amp, which is a Behringer Ultra Bass BX600, and the bass comes with Schecter Diamond Bass pickups (which are active.) I'm not sure where these rate in terms of output (moderate, loud, etc) I play worship music at church, but tone wise am wanting to pursue something like Beartooth, Blink, chuggy sound that can still get heavy. Can't really afford a new amp so looking for pickup ideas/recommendations.
     
  2. Your are waisting your money. Your bass will sound great once you'll get a good amp.

    I like Orange stuff, but what would you recommend?
     
  4. For what you like Ampeg or Orange will do great. I use Markbass but only because of the portability

    I'll second Frenchy-Lefty on this. I owned a Behringer UltraBass model amp head once. Nope. No no no on the sound. Boxy and weird sounding, regardless of which speaker cab I sent it through or how I tweaked the EQ.

    Awesome, thank you. I appreciate it. Now just to save my pennies for an Orange amp....:)

    I just looked up your bass. Very nice! You may look into an electronics replacement some day on that bass, but I'm even more certain that for now that your money is better spent on fixing up your amplifier situation. *nods*
