Yes, U-Retro will work well with active pickups.
Do your pickups have a screen, white and red wires?
* Screen: Cold/Ground pickup input, or can be grounded centrally if more convenient.
* White: Hot pickup input.
* Red: Splice into red battery wire of the retro in order that the pickups are powered on/off with the preamp.
I'm assuming it's a unit without passive tone, as the value of our passive tones is designed for passive pickups.
