I am not a bassist. But sometimes I have to pretend.
The place where I pretend has extended their induction loop and it now interferes like crazy with anything single-coil loaded. Including my less than stellar second-hand Peavy cheapo bass. My bass also has some damage on the next joint which I think is just cosmetic but may be a more fundamental crack.
So I'm half-heartedly toying with keeping an eye out for something "OK" to replace it with, but needs to be cheap as chips (£150-ish) and ideally not be stitched up by the induction loop. This is for strictly clean sounds only, just bog-standard bass playing to accompany simple stuff.
Is that possible? Are humbuckers on a bass a dumb idea? I know nothing ...
