Hi guys So, I'm taking the plunge and shortly buying a bass. Now I'm a guitarist and no next to nothing about pickups and preamps. I won't be using it live it will just be for recording so I can be self sustaining if that make sense. The bass I was thinking of getting is the this one https://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-a...anned-Fret-5-String-Bass-Blue-Burl-Burst/31J3 it's a redsub Coliseum 5 string multi scale. I'll be tuning to drop G. It's cheap and cheerful and think it will do the job due to the scale length it has and I'm approaching it as a upgrade project as I'm guessing the preamp and pickups will suck at this price point. The pickups and preamp I was think of was the nordstrand fd3's and the dark glass tone capsule. To record, I was going to use neural dsp parallax plugin. Music style is I suppose is progressive metal. What I want to know is, is this combo of pickups preamp any good? And is the plugin any good? Also any other suggestions of pickups/preamp would be appreciated, also would it be worth just upgrading just the pickups or the preamp on its own? Or would it need both?.
