    Has any one here ever installed two DiMarzio Model One Pickups on a bass? Thoughts?

    I've never seen it done on TB or elsewhere. I do wonder how good it'd sound.

    I always wonder what it would sound like if you swapped the pickups round in an EB-3 or similar. The sidewinder/mudbucker pickup might make a better bridge pickup.

    Will be interesting to see if anybody has done this.

    Sounded kind of dull, but it was a dull sounding bass acoustically (which is why it was carved up a lot) and I had a pretty dark cab (Aguilar GS412).

    There are 2 for sale in the classifieds.Give it a try.
     
  6. The impedances would match up and so that would help you balance the 2 pickups - the output.

    Wish they made a bass sound like a Wal, I'd grab a pair for sure.

    I'm totally aware that there is more to Wals than the pickups...man has a right to dream though! :(
