    I have some older SD pickups with the micro switches on them that I was gonna put into my bass, I was wondering if anyone knew if these pickups would work with
    • EQ knobs
    • Would work with a passive tone knob (I kinda want something that can do passive and active)
  2. ANY pickups can be used with a preamp, and/or with a passive tone control.

    These are old 'Active EQ' pickups from the 90s. They can be combined with a preamp, but they do require a battery.
