Anyone making a good Aria SB1000 pickup replacement?

The E is quiet on mine.. weak magnet?   It is an original.. 1980’ish

I believe Kent Armstrong made some in past but can’t see anything online.

    SB-1000s are active, but the pickup is a standard passive type - it's just the preamp which is active.

    I've seen this, and they look very high quality, but have no experience of them personally - https://www.rautiaguitars.net/aria-pro-ii.html

    I have the page bookmarked in case anything happens to the one in my SB-R80 though!

    I suspect @ICBM will know, he's a big fan of 80s Aria.

    I recall @HarrySeven improvising a solution for an Eighties Aria or Westone bass pickup. Unfortunately, I cannot recall whether he posted a Discussion about it on this forum or it was a private e-mail.
    Be seeing you.

  • Thanks. It is a passive pickup with a meaty 18v active circuit.

    Amazing bass.. just annoying to have to overplay the E.
