    I'm wanting to do a few pickup samples for the basses I build, I also wind my own pickups. I need to do this at a low cost, any ideas.

    Low cost, but with a learning curve.
    Use your PC
    Pick up reaper: http://www.reaper.fm/
    An active bass can usually plug straight into a pc sound card. (Not ideal, but not as bad as you'd think)
    record tracks of your pickups raw with no effects and minimal EQ.

    Pickup Voxengo Boogex
    And set it up to record from one track to another while being processed by boogex

    You can then post samples of your pickup raw - and how it sounds through various amps and cabinet combinations.
