Hey guys,

I'm looking to upgrade the pickups in my bass, mainly to change from passive to active but you can only get so far with stock pickups.

I have a Squire Jazz Bass, 4 string. I was looking at EMGs but if you have other suggestions I'd really appreciate the input :)

I'm looking for clank city.


I put some Duncan Quarter Pounders in my MIM Jazz and it was a definite improvement. I have never really been completely happy with active bass pickups - so far my favorite sounds have all been passives.
I put a Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound Precision and Hot for Jazz in my Jazz Bass. Sounds sick!
