    probably Kubicki would be the best source. I've run lots of different pups through various pre's and never had a problem but there is always an exception and this may be one. Unless there's buffers and peizo's involved I wouldn't think much about it. I've felt more confident on pre's with a gain trim pot but I can't say I've ever needed it, and I've ran actives to a full range of passives to the same pres (I run pre's in outboard form and swap all kinds pups in and out of the same basses).

    As a last resort result you could check the DC resistance of the existing pups and feel pretty secure the pre would run pups of a ballpark similar resistance. You never know anything till you do it but you can do some things that may throw up some red flags to indicate potential problems in advance.
