The SR400 PJ wiring upgrade plan is nearing finalization. I plan to use a 2 band active EQ, most likely the OBP-1 boost only with stacked knobs with a passive tone out front with a push/pull active/passive selection. Pickups will be passive. I was initially planning to stick with Volume and Blend for the other two which matches how the bass is currently wired and what I am used to recently. However I have been reading about Sadowsky pres that have the similar setup of passive tone before active pre that the blend does not behave the way most people like or expect, not blending as much but dipping the signal from one pickup to the other rather abruptly. Is that what I'm getting now with the stock EQ anyway or will it be more dramatic as how some complain in the case of the Sadowsky? When my PJs were passive I used VVT so the adjustment back won't be a deal breaker. And thanks for the help along the way as I settle in on the final setup.
