    Hi guys,
    Trying to narrow down my choices here but feel free to suggest other similar pickups if you know of them.

    I am mostly interested in anyone who has experiences comparing these two pickups or who runs them in their bass and what they think about them.

    I will have them paired with an aguilar obp-3 if that helps and the music I primarily play is worship music in church. I will drop them in a Peavey Fury VI with a Tech 21 BDDI through a SWR Baby Baby Blue.

    Is there a pickup type that is commonly paired with the obp-3? Any input will help.

    And just out of curiosity which Bart pickup should i go with the XM56C or M56CBC or XXM56M? What is the real difference between these?

    And could I run one EMG 45hz say at the bridge and one Bart at the neck, is it even possible?

    does no one know or does no one care?
    Bump, in a day I close my eyes and pick a set of the barts.
    Any opinions ... please.

    Passive EMG? No problem but it will look funny ;)

    It can also be done with the active EMG but the Bart will need to be buffered to match or you have to use a preamp with dual buffered inputs that will handle either pickup.
