    I know this is a stoopid question:
    Is Bartolini PUs active or passive ?????

    In my experience, Barts are passive, usually coupled with an active preamp.

  4. Ah...but I think Bartolini does make some active pickups (with the preamp built-in). I was able to find the listing, but now I don't know where it is! Yes, I know the difference between active electronics and active pickups, and I'm pretty sure that there are some Bartolinis that are active and just a few bucks more than the passive ones.

    Yeah, most Bartolinis are passive, but there are active ones aswell.
