I have the following Peavey (as seen in http://www.geocities.com/orion_vtol/EMBE3.html). The bass doesn't sound too bad, in fact the other guys that I play with say it sounds pretty good. However, it doesn't have a mid option. My question is, if I were to purchase a Bartolini HR-3.4, which has volumn/volumn, Mid (push-pull frequency switch), Treble/Bass . . . . . would that give my bass a better sound than the factory electronics? My bass currently is an 18 volt setup. The Bart is a 9 volt. I suppose a side question would be, is it a waste of money to buy the Bart preamp if I'm still using the Peavey pickups? And another side question would be, are the pickups in the Peavey Cirrus much different than mine (made mid 1990's, purchased in 1997)? Because I hear that the Cirrus sounds very good! Thanks!
