    Hey, guys!
    I have a Schecter Diamond Series Stiletto Studio-4 and I have two questions for you:
    1- I don't understand what kind of EQ system needs two 9v battery when the actual pickups are two EMG Hz. Can someone explain me why there is a need for 2 batteries?
    2- What pickups, of any label, would be perfect for a metal tone? Why? Give me your opinion, don't think in a general way :hyper:


    P.S.: Here is a pic of the bass:

    It has two batteries because it has an 18 volt preamp.

    I have one of these basses but in 6 string and it does really well for playing metal. In have 2 basses with the EMG HZ pickups and give a real clear punchy tone with lots of fat low end that works really well IMO for metal in general regardless of the sub genre you are playing. I dig em quite a bit.
