    There's really only three active pickups being made - EMG's and Seymour Duncan's Pro-Active and Lightnin' Rods. (There may be more, but these are the ones from major companies).

    From these, the EMG's have always been popular and essentially established the market for active replacement pickups. Seymour Duncan's reputation was really built on passive pickups, especially reproducing vintage models. That doesn't say that their actives are bad, just that they've not yet become popular enough to develop any kind of reputation.
