I'm using the EMG-HZ passive pickups with my Schecter Stiletto 5. EMG's come loaded with the bass. I have never used an active pickup and i'm curious about what will it change if i update to active. I'm playing funk, groove, soul,....I am expecting nice and warm slap sounds and also bright clean tones. Can anyone suggest a better option to EMG-HZ pickups. And do i need to change my electronics? They are active 18 volt EMG's with 2 volume, 3 band eq controls.
