Swapping pickups on my bass, advice please

So i got an alright 5 string bass, plays well, wood is fine, etc. But the pickups are shit lol

It's got the single bridge pickup and 2 smaller neck pickups at the front. Anyone recommend me some good pickups to suit that setup? I'm even considering just running a bridge pickup only because i can't find any good replacement ones for the little neck pickups.

It's my first bass guitar, i've had it for a while. But i want it to sound better, whats killing me is the little neck pickups. Most of the pickup packs i find are the standard long neck and bridge pickup sets. Hope this makes sense

Huh?

What are the pickups' dimensions exactly? The terms "small", "little", and "long" mean absolutely nothing when there's nothing to compare them to. Do you have pics of your bass?

Are you talking this kind of layout?

Need help with setting up a trem?
Need info on your Ibby?

It sounds like you keep looking at Jazz bass pickup sets, what you want is a Precision and Jazz (P&J) pickup set. Precision bass pickups are the two tiny humbuckers roughly near the middle of the bass body (or further up towards the neck) the Jazz pickups are the long ones and that is what you have near your bridge.

It depends on your price range and the sound you're looking for.

price range would help=P. Bartolini 58CBP + 59CBJD-L1 or 58CBP + 59CBJD-L3 depending on the tone desired would be good. but they're kinda expensive.

price range is no real issue. Im not 100% sure on the tone i want, to be honest, i nice smooth bass tone with a nice mid punch would be great.

Some of my favourite bass players are justin chancellor, sam rivers, peter steele...i do love twiggy's bass tone too if any of that is any help.

I been looking at the seymour duncan quarter pounder pickups...what you's rate them?
