    Hey everyone, I have a warwick $$ with 2 stock passive MEC MM style pups (ActivePreamp). I was wondering if i could change out the stock pups and pop in 2 ACTIVE emg MM pups? Im looking for tone also and anything that'd make this bass growl some more :]. ( So if EMG's arent ok please direct me )

    if this is possible what would i have to do (other than buy the pups) and would i need to change my (active) preamp or anything

    Any advice would be great :]

    i think mecs are just cheper versions of EMG's
    so you'll get better sound, EMG often is about growl. MM emg should be really rockin.
    correct me if i am wrong
  3. the EMG-MMTWs are awesome, they are switchable between dual and single coil with the included pot.
  4. oh, and you would need a battery somewhere on board.
