  3. Dimarzio Will Power Middle Pickups...
    I have them in my bass, and I play the same music as you along with some slap and progressive metal.

    They are really great, real oud so you can cut through all the distortion, and awesome tone, great for rock!

    Dimarzio Model P.

    You'll slice though the mix like a hot knife though butter!!

    You could fool the audience into thinking there's a 3rd guitarist.

    They are very hot, yet passive, pickups and really add aggression to the P-Bass.

    They are so loud that I throw my -10db (or 15db?) switch on my amp when playing it and treat it as I would an active bass.
     

  7. The Will Power is veeery similar to the Model P, its basically the Model P wiht a few modifications like covered pole pieces, and theres a lil bit more mid range and bass, unoticable difference really.

    Model P:
    Bass :7
    Treble:5
    Mids: 7

    Will Power:
    Bass:8
    Trebe:5
    Mids:8

    These are great pickups. You will not recognize your bass as the same instrument after installing one.

    I put Reverend 10K P-Bass Pups in my Ibanez Blazer yesterday. $18.00 !!! :hyper:

    http://reverendguitars.com/reverend/instock_specials.html

    These Pups are huge, deep, and fat.
    Tons on Tones.
    Passive, but with the output level of Active Pups.

    I have to leave my amp input at the Active level, which is a plus because my other axe is an Active Warwick.

    I just installed an SD Quarter Pounder in a P bass. Very deep voice, loud, and potentially aggressive, depending on the amp settings.

    Got 'em in my MIM Precision. It sounds spectacular. Really fat bottom but plenty aggressive if needed.

    Cheers,
