Hi, So right now I have Seymore Duncan (Bassline) Quarter-pounder replacement pickups on my bass. They get a lot nicer sound than the stock pickups, but I don't like the sound I'm getting when I slap. The pickups don't really get high-quality -- not very many high-frequencies, you know? The slapping just doesn't sound as crisp and bright as other basses do. In case you're wondering, yes, I have tried many different types of strings, and they still don't get the sound I'm looking for. So. I'm thinking of getting either Bartolini replacement pickups or D'marzio replacement pickups. What do you suggest? Are there any sound clips I could hear out there? An opinions on those pickups? Thanks in advance! EDIT: Whoops, looks like there's billions of other P-bass pickup threads. Sorry. Actually my question is different, because I'm mainly looking for a good slap tone because slapping is my specialty. I hear active pickups are a good way to go. Also, to give you an idea of just what sound I'm looking for, I want: - That really heavy slap sound. Even when you pop higher notes, I want a lot of presence. - Very little noise/humming/buzz. - The tone I want is kinda similar to the Marcus Miller sound. Yeah, that'll be tough to get on a P-bass.
