UK Active EQ Suppliers

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by KevB, Aug 23, 2007.

  1. Hi all,

    I've been searching around a bit lately online, looking to upgrade and have not been able to find any decent UK online retailers for active EQ's etc. Can anyone give me some good leads as I am hellbent on upgrading my bass (which is a relatively cheap 5 string Ibanez one, but I love the way it plays, and the action!!!!).

    I have been looking at the EMG passive pickups (35HZ passive soapbars from Thomann.de. Yes I have small hands!), with a couple of on/off/on switches so I can select between humbucking, North/South coil taps and phase inverting, feeding into an 18v active EQ of some decription, but like I say above, I'm struggling to find anything in the UK.There seems to be a glut of manufacturer websites with decent kit, but all the UK distributers for people like Aguilar and EMG etc, don't seem to stock much.

    Any help would be much appreciated and I hope I can contribute something from this upgrading experience in the future.

    Brian there may be able to get them in, and postage to the UK is cheap :) ( damned nice guy too )
  4. Thanks for the replies guys.

    Just found this site: thomann.de which stocks pickups and active circuitry from EMG, Artec, Seymour Duncan and Bartolini.
    Cheap delivery to the UK also.
