So I've been looking up some stuff about piezo pickups, since I once wondered how it'd sound on a bass. I liked the tone, it sounds pretty acoustic and has a pretty good presence without being trebly.

The only pickup I could find here in Chile was a Dean Markley Artist Transducer though, not sure if that'll do the job well since most people seem to use bridge-mounted piezos.

So what kinda pickup would you guys recommend, and what are your thoughts on the tone?

if you're wondering what they sound like, look at the vids on youtube

I did, that's why I know it sounds acoustic and with presence

Most of your best piezo setups are going to be integral with the bridge. I know Carvin offers basses with Hipshot bridges and piezos, so Hipshot might be a good place to start.

There's also a no name piezo bridge that you can search for "piezo bass bridge" through ebay and amazon user storefronts for cheap. I've thought about pulling the trigger on one a few times. Transducers, other than saddle ones, won't work well: I tried to build a DIY one under a solidbody bass bridge and it just didn't do the trick that it does on an acoustic instrument.

You'd also need a preamp for it since the output is so wimpy.

Now I have piezo bass fever again. I wish Fender kept making the power jazz it had for a while.
