Replacement pickups for P Bass

Post by bradleycoomes » Tue Dec 10, 2013 9:41 pm

Hey bass players. Lately I've found my stock P Bass pickups sound a little flat. I think I'm going to replace them with Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounds. Anyone else use these or like something else better? I'm looking for a pretty aggressive tone.

My bass player upgraded to those years ago and he likes them.

When I upgrade any of my guitar pickups, I use Seymour Duncans.

Be sure and check out their website - http://www.seymourduncan.com/products/b ... p?page=all

the 1/4 lb basslines are amazing.. i'll never play a p-bass without them. i'm waiting for Lindy Fralin to manufacture some bass pickups. maybe he'll make a split-blade p-bass humbucker that destroys the SPB-3's, but until then...........

Thanks for the info. I ended up buying some Dimarzio 122's on ebay (because I got them cheap). I've heard they're pretty "growly" sounding. If they don't work out I'll sell them and go with the quarter pounds. I'm also gonna replace my 250k pots with 500k's. That should boost the output. I'll post with the results.

I've got the 126 in my P/J combo and am pretty happy with them.
