I know there have been numerous posts comparing these, but I noticed something. When I visited www.basstaster.com, I compared those 2 (outboard versions) being used with a Sadowsky Jazz. Both eqs made the basses sound muddier compared to no eq. Are there other clips out there that give a better comparison? From the sound of those clips, I would rather go passive. FWIW, I prefer using Sadowsky PJ instead of the JJ set.
