    How would an MM pup sound wired straight to the output jack? Or even yet, active: MM pickup > preamp > output

    Has anyone tried an MM with no volume pot? Will this be brighter? Or will it make no difference because of the way the preamp works (i still dont fully understand why you get a brighter sound in an active circuit).
