    The Bart would need a buffer, otherwise the output stage on the EMG would load it down.

    Once you made the Bart "active", they would play nice with each other.

    Then the bass would explode. ;)

    Some years ago I had a Lane Poor M3.5W and EMG 35DC in the same bass for a brief period. The EMG was MUCH louder... and sounded like crap in comparison.
