    I have a Warwick Streamer Stage I that had the MEC preamp go out, I’d like, if I can, to make it a Volume-Volume-Tone-Tone setup, but keep the 18v for the active Mec pups... is that possible?

    I’ve searched around but couldn’t find a specific diagram for it. Does anyone have such a diagram??

    Thanks in advance!
     
  2. The wiring would be the same as any other bass with that control scheme.

    I didn’t know if the active pickups changed anything?
     
  4. No. Just make sure you hook up the battery properly, and use right pots and capacitors.
