    I have a Bassline equipped Lakland 55-94 w/ the Bart preamp........I have been pondering the idea of a possible pup-preamp swap. I am not set on the preamp swap just yet, however if greater results can be achieved with a preamp swap - then I will consider a new preamp. Actually, I am not a totally set on swapping out electronics, just kinda curious as what one could expect if they did.......So here is what I am wondering;

    How different are the Nordstrands (J/MM) compared to the SD Basslines??

    What could I expect if installed an Audere preamp along with a set of Nordy's

    What do you dislike (if anything) about the SD's? I have a 44-02 with Barts, and I'm wondering if I should get Duncans to make it more aggressive.:bassist:

    Depends on what you want to hear. Some manufactures have different output on their pups like how many turns on the winding, magnetic field N-S alignment etc. Try it and listen to the difference. There's no way else to tell. It's a small investment however if you dont like them sell them on Ebay and recoup some of your money.
