So I have 2 SRs, a 5 string and a 4 string fretless, and I'm thinking of replacing the stock CAP pickups on both of them.
So far I'm looking at EMGs and Bartolinis, but I don't know where to begin to narrow down my choices.
I'll be doing some session recordings and live shows for different bands so versatility is first on my priority list. I also hit pretty damn hard with both fingers and pick and like a lot of upper midrange punch, kinda like Justin Chancellor's tone, which also means I use a drive pedal every now and then.
So let's hear some suggestions, any suggestions outside EMGs and Bartolinis are also welcome.
If you need versatility I would look at these:
NYC Bass™ - 4 and 5 String - Seymour Duncan 5-String
wire them to a rotary instead of the pan or a couple mini switches added in addition to the pan control
