    OK so I have a set of EMG p/j pickups. I was asking a question about them and someone mentioned a preamp. I know nothing about pickups. Can you purchase different preamps to go with the pickups?

    EMG makes several pre-amps.

    Like dougray said they make the BTS, which has bass and trebble, but they also make the VMR which is a mid with mid frequecy preamp cicuit. They also make a BTQ which is a combination of both. EMG preamps can be found in several configurations such as stacked controls, or seperate.

    In addition to these, all active EMG pickups include a built in preamp.
