    Call it more about a certain Fishman employee bugging me about how great these pups were... :lol: Anyhow, I grabbed some Fishman Fluence "Open Core Classic" pups sometime over the summer, and wired them up with a 3-way blade switch, 4 toggles (two 3-way and two 2-way), and a push-pull pot...

    Is there a way to direct mount these without screwing the screw ring on the pickups? I mean that brass thing.

    Hello I want to install EMG 81 active pickup in my Ibanez SZ520 which at the moment has stock passive pickups. I will remove only bridge passive pickup and replace it with active EMG. Do you guys have any tips or some helpfull wire diagrams before I start with work ? My Ibanez has 2 volume and...

    I was wondering what kind of reamp box I should get. Active or passive and what are the pros/cons. All my guitars have passive humbucker pickups. Thank you!

    Out of curiosity. How is the power not being sapped from an amp through the jack or your interface like some usb powered gear?

    This weekend I had a buddy over (flaxfoot on the forum), and we noticed my Mac, although 6 years old, was running way too slow. Fritz opened up the Active Processes screen and noticed I had a few too many, nearing 220. Does anyone know of a good program to clean that up? Should I just run a...

    Hi there, I have a question: I bought a guitar with a Sustainiac Neck PU and an EMG 57 Bridge. Compared to my Bareknuckles the EMG has to less output.. therefore I want to change it to a bareknuckle together with the sustainiac. It will be a mixture of a active/passive then.. But I have only...

    It just struck me that NOBODY (???) makes custom active pickups?! It's all passives when you look at custom winders. Or are there any? Not that I'm interested at the moment, but would be cool if there were any.

    I'll go through my general setup so you know the situation, I record three guitars with Guitar Rig 4, a bass, Addictive Drummer and sometimes another guitar or a vocal track. So only 4-6 tracks, at the most 8, and when recording I have open the CPU usage monitor. While recording and jamming, the...

    So... I've searched but couldn't find any discussion on this. Isn't a passive pickup with an active preamp basically the same thing as an active pickup? Except that the preamp circuitry isn't sealed in the pickup? :scratch: For example, would a low output ceramic pickup sound like an EMG 81...

    Ok, so I'm trying to add an active bridge pickup to one of my guitars but keep the passive in the neck position. I've found a couple wiring diagrams, but nothing exactly as what I'm trying to do it. This schematic is probably the closest I have come to what I'm looking for, but I want...

    Absolutely hate to do this, but my new music space is smaller than my old music space and I only got to enjoy these for a couple of months before I had to pack up and start relocating to Portland. They are 8" studio monitors with a discrete 4" midrange driver and a 1" tweeter (60W+18W+18W). I...

    Anybody any experience of these? Heard a few demo's and leaning towards maybe swapping passive Duncan's in my RR3. Any thoughts?

    Ok, so my Suhr came with a pair of humbuckers, a three way blade, a volume, and a tone with a coil tap for both pickups. Tapped, I currently get the neck coil of the neck pickup, and (I'd have to check, but I imagine) the bridge coil of the bridge. Individually they sound awesome, but I mostly...

    Hey guys, just received a spanking brand new schecter banshee in the mail today. Super stoked to finally own a floyd equipped guitar to say the least. Got it all set up to my likings, which was incredibly smooth and easy compared to what my initial anxiety over the situation alluded to. This...
