Ok, I'm planning on getting a MIA Passive Jazz Bass, and I want to put EMGs in it. I'm going to get the EMG J Set, and I want to know if it will work with a volume and a blend, or if vol/vol is the only way to go unless I get the BTC/BQC. I also don't want an onboard EQ, due to the fact that I hate knobs, and I usually play with the tone knob(s) set flat. Also will these EMGs help me in getting a good cutting, growly mids tone? I'm going to start a metal/punk/hard rock band with some friends and need to be able to cut through easily.
