What pick up to choose?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Mujahid, Sep 25, 2008.

  1. I want to have a custom 4 string bass made. I have someone to do that already. What I'm wondering is what pick up to use. Active for sure. Something that has a smooth mellow tone but I can slap on too. Does this exist or do I need 2 different basses for this? I heard bartolini was good but on there site i couldn't find an active pick up. Thanks
  2. Get Barts and an active Preamp like an Aguilar or something. From what I've heard this combination is amazing and quite versatile. As far as what pickups to use, I'm not sure. I'm in the middle of the same dilemma myself.

    I think you better with passive pickup with active pre.

    +1 on Bart and aguilar
