Sorry if this is in the wrong section i had no luck in the bass section.

My current rig is a Fender Deluxe P-bass Special 4-String
and a
Berhinger Ultrabass BXL 1800A

I realize this amp isn't so great, but I was on a budget. Anyway, I'm just not getting the sound i want out of this setup. So, I was wondering if anyone knew of any pedals or pickups i could use to get the sound i want. The sound i want is a Mike Dirnt from Green Day type sound. I play mostly punk music and some alternative etc. So I'm pretty much just looking for a good punchy distortion sound. thanks in advance.

If you're going for a kind of punk type sound you might want to get a boss OBD 3 bass overdrive pedal, its a really nice pedal unfortunatly it doesnt come cheap probably about 140 dollars or so at least thats what I got mine for. Otherwise you can try browsing for a bass distortion pedal made by other makes which might be cheaper or you can try and make one.

Duncan Basslines Quarter-pounder pickups are great. Helps alot for getting the Mike Dirnt sound.
