Victor Wooten EMG Pickup Set
I just wanted to inquire regarding this Victor Wooten EMG pickup set:
I currently have an Aguilar OBP-1 on my bass and I'm happy with it, so my question is, will this work on my current onboard preamp?
Thanks in advance!
Yes it will. You will need to change the Volume/Blend pots on your OBP-1 to the EMG volume and/or blend pots, as EMG use 25k pots and normal pickups with an OBP-1 are typically 250k pots. You could even find an EMG 25k/25k volume pot (audio taper) from Best bass gear ($19) and run the OBP-1 as a stacked knob preamp instead, install the included EMG tone knob, and have Vol-Vol-Tone-Bass/Treb like a sadowsky bass or similar setup. The obp-1 is nice and configurable like that.
In fact, that combination sounds like quite a winner if you ask me.
I appreciate the helpful info joelb79. Thanks a bunch! For now, I plan to have my setup as vol-vol-bass-treble but I'll consider your suggestion in the future.
Also, the 25k pots you mentioned, are they the same ones that are included when purchasing an active EMG-PJ set?
I appreciate all your responses . I got everything I needed to know.
