Curious as to the tone diff you noticed between the mkI's and Carvins?
the bart pre looks ok. am not sure if i should get the obp-3
both sets are passive
lots of tone difference, the carvins are hotter and bass heavier and somehow the high C sounds twangy ever since i put on the carvins in the bass.
although i still hear the mk-1'ish sound in the "texture" or the character of the sound. it probably is the preamp doing this but i can only find out when i get a new preamp to upgrade!
although there is no denying that the carvins sound better than the mk1 pickups!
