    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 really dig the stock Kiesel Lithiums in my V227 and my V7 but the ones in my Vader aren't really cutting it. I'm sure due to only having 1/3 the mass of the others. :lol: I don't necessarily want it to sound bigger like the other 2, just a bit better. I was playing the Vader last night, all...

    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!

    I'm going to switch out the pickups from actives to passive in one of my charvels. The old set up before I put blackouts in it was jb/jazz. Not really sure what to look in for passive pickups that aren't specifically designed for metal.

    So I got that Edwards Alexi last month and the EMG H4 is an atrocity, so its coming out. I'd like to try something that's "New" rather than any of the older established models, just because I like trying new things. Traditionally I've been an EMG person, and my ESP with the same configuration...

    Just had my face lifted clean off by the tone I got with the blend of these two mics. https://soundcloud.com/numbskullaudio/shure-sm57-se-voodoo-v1-tone-test Ribbons tend to be a little dark in the top end (or rolled off, more like) but this one extends a little higher than most. It's still...

    Hi all, I picked up an RGir27 recently, hate the EMGs and have managed to get ahold of some empty active covers.... now all I need is something to go inside them... After bridge and neck passive 7 string pickups, preferably nothing mega high gain, what have you got? Pop me a message...

    Hello fellow axemen, I grew really tired of actives due to the inability to change them until the soapbar mounts came up. Sadly, these cost an arm and a leg in Europe so I'm checking the used market. What I'm looking for: - Pegasus/Sentient set - Lace X-Bars - Bareknuckles (w/ Alnico magnets)...

    I like the super hot and "fluid" feel of the 85 in the neck, but I wanna have something passive. And not expensive shit like Bareknuckles please. I have my eyes on Dimarzio Liquifire, but are there any others? Maybe I should just put an Alnico bridge pickup in the neck instead? Which the 85...

    For those who are interested, this deal exists. It's a trans black burst Schecter Banshee 7-string w/ Nazgul and Sentient pups. With a case, it's $594 U.S. which seems like a sweet deal. I think there's an active version on sale as well. The red one is a completely different price. Schecter...

    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...

    So, after playing it a while and really kinda digging it, I've decided I'm keeping my PRS SE Baritone even if it's just to have fun with once in a while. So... I'd like to find a slightly more expressive pickup. I don't want anything that's too muddy and I want to stay passive. Probably...

    Got this in trade from Beard maybe two years ago. Great bass - very easy to play, sounds absolutely thunderous in the low end, and looks awesome. It's in pretty good shape too - some fretwear, but not much in the way of cosmetic blemishes that I can recall. I've been going back and forth on...
  14. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    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...

    Hey, I have limited experience with passive pickups, I always played on actives, so I'd like to discuss this particular topic and if some of you are still experimenting with this. I know it's mainly a matter of taste but I want to hear your stories and your personal discoveries regarding...

    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...

    Hey y'all. So I have a LTD ES 10 with stock ESP pick ups, "LH-100's", I'm pretty sure. It's a very cheap guitar but when its plugged into a decent amp it has an alright tone. The biggest issue is when playing fast/grindy, there is very little definition and the notes pretty much go to mud. If...

    just simply looking for a passive alternative to active that just sounds very rich and full, with nice clarity, but with plenty of bite and growl, for a tone reference im looking for Listen to Terror On The High Seas by Alestorm, thanks guys

    Its DC resistance is 48k. It lives for stoner/doom metal. It'll drink all your beer and go through your stuff but it'll also help you move house because it's cool like that. It once hog-tied a Rancor. It patched things up between Mork and Mindy when things were looking a little rough. It likes...
