If you look for the best fivestring humbucking bass tone available and can not accept any compromise, check out the DELANO SBC5 HE/S.
Its precision engineered dual coil design combines tight fat bottom and vocal like midrange articulation with sparkling wide open top end detail. Incredibly rich unmasked harmonics. Very direct sounding but never harsh or brittle. Great pickup for world class fretless tone. Huge fivestring muscle with seamless low-B string integration. Best of both worlds, classy highend tone with vintage warmth. Performs equally well in pure passive mode or combined with onboard active electronics. They are available as single units or in perfectly matched pairs.

Great Schecter EMG40 Replacement

Even with the stock EMG 2-band premp, there is an amazing array of useful tones. FWIW I have an East U Retro Preamp on order and am sure it will be even better with mid-sweep control. Even with the EMG preamp, with the right treble adjustment, I can practically get a fretless tone out of the higher strings, which are Dunlop flatwound by the way...
If you are considering thesepickups, do a youtube search by manufacturer/model and you will likely find some results from Public Peace. Videos are very well done and give as good an example as you will probably find on the internet of how these will sound in your bass. - Watch the descriptions for what preamp they are using. One of the models I looked at featured an East Preamp, hence putting one on order. Ok is good, but better is well, better!
