I did some searching but couldn't find much, I'm pretty sure I'm getting a Bartolini preamp, 3 band 4 knob configuration for a bass I'm having built. I just don't want to goof things up by getting pickups that won't go well with this preamp. I play mainly hard rock and metal, progressive stuff. After reading some other posts I came to the conclusion Bart pickups aren't a good choice for this style? So my question is, will passive EMG's work well with this preamp? I'm also considering Basslines. The preamp has a push/pull feature on the volume knob for active/passive, so naturally I don't want full time active pickups. This is my first custom project although I'm not the builder, I just don't want to make any mistakes in the hardware/electronics that I purchase. Thanks ahead of time.
