Bartonlinis have a very clean sound compared to EMG and Bassline. I'm not to experienced in the world of bass pickups. EMG's have a more gritty Ampeg-like tone to them. I just don't like bassline pickups because they give out too much hi-mid, and they are built a little cheap. Barts will give you that deep reggae sound.

Although, I've heard good things about Nordstrand.
