    Hi, I want to upgrade my SRT900DX preamp (Ibanez vari mid) to something more usable and good sounding - any ideas what should work well with EMG 40DCs? I know that ideally I have to get all the available preamps and try them with pups myself, but sadly it's not feasible.. :)
    I'm thinking of either EMG or Michael Pope. Any ideas?

    Thank you!

    Id reccomend the 3band emg preamp for those.

    What are you looking to do? What kind of tone are you after?

    Music is funk/fusion. I have an sr1200 with Nordstrands, so I want something different from that, but still fitting the style. EMGs sound different by definition, but I would like something that will make their "hi-fi"ness more pronounced without getting harsh and brittle.
