Curtis Novak, David Allen Pickups, Van Zandt, Klein Pickups, Bullock Guitar Pickups, Bare Knuckle, Arcane Inc. Anyone with experience with these boutique pickup makers? They are obviously less well known than Fralin, Lollar, Nordstrand but that does not mean their products are less interesting. Curtis Novak seem to be the most popular on Talkbass currently. Any experience with and description of their P bass pickups would be appreciated. As an aside note, it drives me crazy that large and small pickup producers are for the most part not posting demos or audio tracks of their pickups. In this day and age it's kind of ridiculous to rely on consumers to do this on your behalf (and that's in the best case scenario). Very often there are no recording of pickups. Some of these pickups are in the $120 to $140 range and consumers should not have to buy them blind.
