Active And Passive


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I have an OLP MM-1 that has been modded out with new tuners(Planet Waves) and an EMG 85. I was recently given a Gibson Dirty Fingers as a gift and I hope to use it. I have read that you can mix active and passive pickups, with the use of EMG's PA-2. I was wondering if any else has combined active and passive pickups and how hard it was.

Any active buffer or preamp will allow you to mix EMGs with passive p/us.

This thread may help:


And take a look at Jack Orman's Super Buffer - as he says in the article, you could build that circuit with one opamp chip, and it would drive a low impedance output compatible with EMGs.
