  1. I'm going to replace the pickups on my Peavey Millenium BXP in the near future, but am stuck in between which pickup I should choose.

    I have narrowed it down to these two p'ups...

    Duncan Designs Quarter Pounders
    &
    DiMarzio Ultra Jazz


    Obviously, I'm looking for a modern and aggressive tone. So, which one should I spring for? Price is no issue, as they're both pretty even.

    FYI, I plan on getting a SansAmp DI, so I'm not looking for anything fancy preamp-wise, or anything like that. Just need some kickin' passive J's to run through a V/V/T, then out the DI, then to a Yorkville XM200T, then to you ears!!!


    Thanks in advance,
    ~Ryan

    No vote becuase I've never heard the UJs. Have a set of QPs in my Jazz though and love them. Very warm to my ears, and seem to have higher output than whatever comes stock in a MiM Fender.
