    My fretless bass has an emg bqc system preamp, and i want to install some emgs on it(soapbars).

    Have someone experienced that configuration???

    I love the tones that I can get. It's a very versatile combination. So far I haven't had any trouble finding whatever sound I needed from it. I play Gospel/Jazz/Funk. I can get a great jazz tone. Nice Lows, Crisp highs and a variable mid. If you boost the low mids and favor the bridge pu you can get a nice growl which would probably be good for fretless. I have an alder bodied bass, but they really sing with an ash bodied bass. I would definately recommend them.
