  1. I'm thinking of installing some Barts in my MIM JBass as well as a J-Retro preamp in there, and i'm starting to worry about the impedence (sp?) would it work? would it sound ok?

    From what I've heard that should work just fine. Most Barts aren't low-impedance like EMGs.

    It should sound fine because the Nearly all of Bartolinis pickups are passive, unlike EMG's which are all active. Bartolinis are much better then emg's IMHO!!!! I hate active pickups. If you want active get an onboard preamp!! Sorry i started ranting!!!
