    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 ;)

    using a EMG BTS control, can an active passive switch be installed?

    Anything with a one input and one output can be bypassed.

    Thanks - I found some other threads showing you right.
    Another question using Emg tone controls can the 25k pots be switched to 250 or 500k pots for volume?

    Any pot that is a part of the preamp needs to be whatever value EMG specifies for proper operation. If it's a volume or blend or passive tone pot, however, you can use whatever suits the pickup impedance and your personal preference.

    Are you using the BTS with passive pickups? Then you would want a 250 or 500k passive tone control. With the active EMGs it should be what they come with. The passive EMG tone control doesn't work very well. The active one is better.
