EMG Active PUP Pots

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by DieselKTM, Apr 5, 2015.

  1. Does anyone know what pots (Ohms) should be used with EMG PJ Active set up? I have two instruments and the output is significantly lower on one that has generic pots in it. My other bass has EMG pots in it and clearly sounds better with more output. I already bought and installed a BTC preamp, so I would hate to have to buy a whole pot kit. I'm wondering if the generic pots are the issue?

    Thanks for the help!

    They use 25k pots.

  3. A switch to 50k or 100k may give a touch more output.

    To answer the question, however, just about anything under 100k will work. It's all a matter of personal preference. I believe that EMG does indeed recommend 25k, however.
