Which replacement pups for a Warwick?

    I bought a second hand Warwick Streamer std '99 5 string with MEC soap bar passive pups. They sound ok but just arn't big and dynamic enough to punch through playing live. Which Bartolini's will do the job or is there another pup that is better.

    Any advice gladly accepted

    IIRC, the Std 5 has the same p-ups as the others, MEC Gold. Then it is P4 shape. But you should rather make sure, measure your p-ups and check the Bartolini online catalog

    Will have a look. I have an ESP Bass with EMGs that I'm not very happy with either, the sound is there, but not there, if you know what I mean?
