I have these EMG 40HZ pickups on my Schecter Elite 5..factory standard for this model. These are picking up string slap and I haven't been able to allievate this annoying effect. I'm now using Half Round Strings to bring down this effect but still produces a clicking type sound when I dig in. Round Wound Strings almost made this bass sound like it would explode. Looking for a upgrade pick up to put in this bass that'll will not do this and give a better tone. I use this on my rig for a modern country rock type group.. I would like to find something that will produce a nice warm not too brite tone with this Bass and my mesa M9 carbine head.. Any ideas to better immulate these nashville recording bassists in a live setting. ?? I dont like a lot of treble or mid for this application.. I'm looking for a clean warm tone with some moderate sustain and to alleviate this clicking noise when I strike the string with my finger.
