Trying to go active, help?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Gingerfish, Dec 13, 2004.

  1. Ok so i recently played a couple of basses with active EMG and so i now want to fit some active pups to my bass and was wondering if i was to get a set of EMG PJ's then what the other components i would require would be? thanks.

    If you buy the EMGs new, they come with all the wiring you need to go from a passive PJ to an EMG active PJ, ie active pickups, but no onboard boost/cut tone shaping preamp. Apart from that, you'll need somewhere for the battery. IIRC, the EMG site has details on this.
