    After a lot of deliberation (and reading) I have decided I am going to upgrade my bass with a Piezo pickup. I have checked out all the major players and I have narrowed it down to these 3 options. This is mainly because as I am in the UK and both Schaller & ABM are in Germany - it is easier and cheaper for me to order from Europe rather than the US.

    I have attached some pics of the Schaller & ABM alternatives and the cheapie ebay one can be found here:

    I have gone through all the posts regarding Piezo pickups but I could do with comparisons on these particular types if possible. Thanks!

    From what I gather it's mostly personal taste / aesthetics.

    ABM for quick load...I'd say ABM wins by a nose.

    The Schaller 3D bridge is the only piezo bridge I know that allows string spacing adjustment. I'm probably going to buy one and will keep you posted.

    The Hipshot/Graphtech Ghost bridges allow some adjustments to the spacing, as well.

    That's not what Hipshot told me in the reply I got from them this week.

    However, I found that ETS makes 3D adjustable piezo bridges, beautifully made, check them out.
