I've been thinking about this for a bit. Figured I'd throw this up here and see what some of what everyone thinks.
Since getting the Hulk in I've been playing around with different settings with the tone knob. To my ears it sounds like the EMGXs in the hulk respond more in a passive pickup way that the EMGTWs that are in my Hellraiser. But the main question is: Who here out of the active pickup users actually use their tone knobs with their active pups? And how? Also if you don't use it why? Have you removed the knob?
I always left the tone full on with my EMG guitars. Now that I'm switching to passives, I still don't use the tone so maybe I'm not a good one to ask
