I am looking to replace a set of MK1s in a five string. They are noisy and are very flat sounding. Nordstrand has a pickup size that will fit in my cavities but they only offer exposed pole pickups that wont line up with my string spacing. I was going to buy a set of MK5CBCs but I have since stumbled upon these and they have me intrigued. Does anyone have any experience with Reed James pickups? How do they compare to the MK5CBCs. I like a bright sounding set of pickups that can get a good growl with the mids boosted.
