I have a swamp ash w/QMT 5string bass(maple neck w/ebony FB), and I'm trying to decide which pups to install. I was gonna go EMG DC40's with their BQC pre, but seems like alot of players like Bartolini, especially in the "jam band" scene. I like the clarity that I remember of EMG's, but I also like that "burpy, low end, staccato" tone of a bass. Anyone rocking EMG's/Bart's in a band similar band situation, and thoughts? Is one "better" than the other, especially for my application? Does knowing I play through a Genz Shuttle 9.0 into a Genz NeoX212T help the scenerio? Thanks for any help/input TB Community.
