So, I'm new-ish around here, this is my second post, anyhow I've been looking at some pickups and preamps (on board) for one of my basses. It's a pretty standard starter bass, Washburn Lyon, 4-string, one tone and volume control, single split P style pickup; and it's the first bass I bought, and learn most everything on. I've more or less narrowed it down to either a DiMarzio (DP 127) Split P pickup, or a Basslines Quarter-Pound pickup. I've read some reviews and some specs, and I just can't seem to decide, but I especially like the prices I've seen on the Quarter-Pound. I know what kind of style I play may be useful to the decision, and to anyone who has advice; and I play lots of punk and metal. As for preamps, I'm pretty lost, I don't know what brands to look in to, or too much else, other than what it does. I don't want to pay for something that I could pay less for; or overpay for one preamp and there be better, more affordable one. So if anyone would recommend one of the above pickups, or a better one in the price range (under $90, $100 max), and a good preamp, that'd be great; Thanks.
