    I see alot of Spector users replacing the Tone Pump with an EMG preamp. I'm not familar with the Tone Pump and was wondering the reasoning for replacement? Care to fill me in on the differences between the two?

    For me, the tone pump had a few faults.

    They were:

    The output was too hot. It was very easy to inadvertantly overdrive your amplifier's preamp, without wanting to

    boost only. I usually prefer to cut frequencies, rather than boost.

    No mid control

    harsh highs

    The EMG has none of these problems.
