1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    I think Dimarzio makes a solderless, but don't know too many details about that....


    It would probably be a good idea to at least get familiar with soldering, it's a good thing
    to know and have part of your arsenal.

    Yeah, I'd like to do so, but my father, who now lives in Jacksonville, was the one who used to do it when I first got into playing/ building. Now that I'm older, I see the importance of such things, but don't have the confidence for it. I guess when it becomes important enough, I'll find a way to learn. :/

    As far as I know, EMG's are only solderless using EMG electronics. You have to cut the harness apart to use any other preamp with them.

    My Pope preamp has solderless connections, but I had to cut and splice the EMG's to have wire to use with my preamp's connectors.
