I've been thinking about converting my Korean Lakland 44-02 with Bartolinis from active to passive. I've been reading the forums to gather information about the conversion. My question is this: If I remove the preamp from the signal path but keep the Barts, will I get enough output signal from the pickups themselves? The Bartolini website is a little thin on output specs. I'm going to replace the current 50K pots with 500K pots and going Vol/Vol/Tone. Or would 250K be better? Is there anything I can do to ensure a strong output signal? I've already got the pickups as close to the strings as I dare. Is there any thing else I should consider before heating up my soldering iron? Thanks.
