I rarely use my blend knob on my bass. It's always right in the center. I'm considering getting a new Bart Preamp but can only get one with a 3 pot setup. Option 1.) HR-3.4 which is for a two pickup layout, having stacked volume/volume, mid, stacked bass/treble. Totally fine for my 3 pot limitations, but without the ability to switch to Passive if I wanted. Option 2.) HR-2.4 which is for a single pickup layout, having the volume push/pull Passive/Active, mid, stacked bass/treble. Here's my question. If I always keep my blend in the center, could I just hook both pickups up to the single pickup connection, or would I have problems doing that? Bottom line is, currently I only have an Active bass setup. If the HR-3.4 is the only way I can go [that is, no Passive option], then I'll live with it. Thanks!
