    Team,

    I have a pretty sweet fretless streamer pro M that I am considering selling/trading because I feel the preamp and (always active) electronics and squashing the tone.

    Can these pups be run passive? or active/passive w an OB-2/3?

    Is setup w 3 knows vol/blend, b/t, b/t

    I'd like v-passive pull, blend, b/t

    or even v/v/t (get my boost at a later time)

    Thanks for any help!

    Does yours not have the passive pull option?
    I owned a ProM 5 about eleven years ago, but for the life of me can't remember if that model have the passive pull or not.

    the three stacked knobs are vol/blend, b/t (front coil), b/t (rear).

    No passive option.
