Just connected these pickups in combination with a by Mike Pope himself special build internal Fodera pre-amp. The fun is that these combination is installed in my Alembic Signature EVH 5 string Buckeye Burl bass. The result is amazing.
Normally the Alembic is equipped with signature electronics and Axy pickups. Also not bad, but not to compare with this stuff.
