    I've got this piezo bridge for a six string that has individual wires for each saddle. Do i need some sort of buffer or booster to match the output level of the active electronics that i'm putting in the bass? I'm going to be using bartolini triple coil humbuckers and the Bartolini EZQ. I'd like to be able to blend the signals from each to a single output.
    thanks for any help!:)

    You need their MPB magnetic/piezo blend module. You should be able to get it wherever you got the MM pickup.

    You wouldn't happen to have the wiring schematic for the EZQ would you? I have one of the EZQs but I don't have a wiring diagram.

    I have a wiring diagram for the EZQ preamp.
    I actually have 2 different ones.

    pm or mail me and I can get it to you

    wow, hey, if you could email me the wiring diagrams for the ezq, also, that would be way cool. i've had two of them sitting around for years, but i've lost all the paperwork that came with them.
    thanks for the info on the bridge, too, I kind of figured that that was what i needed, but bartolini's website isn't finished, so there wasn't too much information on it..
    thanks, tim
