    Yes, that's an active pickup. EMG's pickups (not HZ's or Selects) have the preamp inside the pickup but can be used with an addtitonal onboard preamp.

    so in order to add bass eq I would have to buy an additional preamp?

    any recommendations?

    This p/u will be used in a Hohner /steinberger copy.

    Are the EMG HBs a good quality pickup with the lots of low-end power?

    Any from Emg, Bart, Aguilar. What particular one would fit your needs depends on what your needs are - 2 band / 3 band?
