No, they are quite hot. Designed to be passive and enhanced by an EQ. Plenty of Passive basses with Nordstrand Big singles. The only pickup that one may say "needs" an eq is the fat stacks when in noise cancelling mode.
If you want tonal flexibility beyond a passive tone control definately add an EQ of your choice...I still reccomend the Nordstrand pre, it can be ordered to suit your needs/knob layout. and most dealers will wire it up for you...Call the Nordstrand shop or best bass gear.com both will know everything about getting you taken care of properly.
