Stingray 5 pup swap

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Charlie Quatro, May 1, 2001.


  1. Hey,
    Has anybody replaced pickups in a Stingray 5 with any of the Bartolinni models (or others).

    I like the deep sound and the slap sound of the original but I would like to get that mid-range 'nasal' sound as in the Jazz bridge pup.


    Don't want to loose the slap sound though!

    Any Ideas?

    How 'bout adding the piezo bridge pup that Ernie Ball offers?
     
  3. Got a fretless on the way with the piezo. Probably take another 3 months.

    Did some more tweaking and it sounds fine.
    I should probably just leave it alone.

    I just wondered if the Bart would make an great sounding bass sound even better.

    I should wait anyway. I have an Aguilar coming in next week (they're rewiring it to 2 ohms) that will probably bring the bass to life even more.

    Thanks,
    Charlie (Peavey Lover) Quatro
