    Does anyone have any experience with Demeter's onboard preamp? I am replacing the EMG BTS in my Modulus because I miss having a mid control (will most likely go with a BQC), and was wondering what people's experiences have been with this pre. Also, is this pre compatible with EMG DC pickups? Thanks for the help.

    Regards,

    I just replaced my EMG BQC? system with a Demeter pre-amp. The reason was I thought the pre-amp was causing a buzz, turns out it was not (luckily my tech buds got all my money back from EMG).

    Anyway...I my EMG had a mid range control, I found the centre frequncy to be in an odd spot though. I liked the growl the EMG's gave me (wired to Dimarzio Split P and Ultra Jazz) also.

    I find the Demter to be a smoother sound, less midrange growl, but it is a richer, fuller sound. Though the Demeter costs twice as much as the EMG.

    I really like the Demeter.
