    Hey guys! New here, to TB--finally joined because the support here seems to be pretty amazing! Well I will cut to the chase. Looking to change the Dynamic Correction MEC pickups I have in my Warwick Corvette Std. I have heard the SD Basslines, in particular, the jazz bass quarter pounders. I play a mix of rock, reggae, funk, and blues. Do you think these would be a good buy?
    A few more questions: Going from passive setup to active electronics: Would SD's electronics be a no-brainer to go with? Also, I know that the electronics come with knobs. Could I use my Warwick knobs instead of theirs? Do they have a push/pull knob to bypass the preamp? It sounds like a silly question, but thought I'd ask anyway.

    You may want to change pots, but could use your knobs on new pots. You'd be wide open on pre-amp choices, I might consider noiseless j pickups, if using a preamp with them, like Duncan's classic stack j's, but choices for the pickups, and preamp are more subjective than anything else. It is possible to pick a preamp and pickups that just sound bad together, I would call Seymour Duncan, they are very helpful with questions on their products. Single coil Jazz pickups tend to be a bit noisy, a preamp could make that noise worse, the guys at Duncan would know what works and doesn't, and are friendly.

    Thank you Growlmonkee! I'll call them to see what they say.
