    Hello Everyone!!!

    I'm asking for everyone's input on this issue.

    I also own a Streamer Stage II 5 String. Great bass.
    Here are a few questions re the Streamer:

    What string gauge do you all use for your low B? I have a .128 and I think its too heavy to get a low action w/o a fret buzz, I have to jack up th action a bit too high to compensate. Would a .115 or .120 allow lower action?

    On a related note, Could anyone recommend replacement pickups and electronics for the Streamer The Streamer has the stock MEC jazz pups and 18 volt electronics.

    Your post has covered the range of many of the forums here. I think setup might be a good place to start for some of your questions, so I'm going to move this over there.

    Since there are separate forums for strings, amps, pickups, etc., you can always post individual questions in each forum. That way you'll get the best discussions / responses.

    And feel free to fill out your profile. Tell us about yourself!

    .115 will be to thin for a low B
    but I think that can solve your problem a bit, but I believe you can get it solve by raising up the pickup on the low B side so you don't have to pick the low B string to hard to get a full sound.

    try basslines active jazz pickup or stacked humbucker
    or maybe bartolini pups
