    Hi all!

    I want to change mine for some more "Punchy" and "mighty".

    I hesitate with : Seymour ; Bartolini ; Fodera if IO find some... ; EMG maybe ?

    Who can say me more about these ?

    Thx

    Lars

    The punchiest pickups I´ve tried were EMGs.

    But you forgot to especify what bass is yours...

    Thanks anyway ;)

    Hi

    My bass is active, with a 9Volts battery.

    The format of my pikups are 2 JB
     
  6. sounds like a good candidate for emg's then since you have the batt wiring already there.?
    :)

    I'm not sure I understood you phrase... :) (I'm french)

    But... yes, I jsut need to replace the pick up, as I have all wiring and electronic OK.

    Thanks !
     
  8. i meant
    all is ok for a replacement if it is emg you choose because you have the battery and wiring for it.
    but there may be a passive (ne pas electronique?)
    to be considered as well for the sound you want..

    :)
