Active Pickup Question


Recommended Posts

doesnt matter how many turns or the dc resistance(which doesnt determine how hot the pup is anyway) most will be a very weak pup that is boosted and eq'd by an internal preamp, hence the need for a battery on board

Thanks for the answer, but I know that, I just need some info on the kind of specifations most active pickups have, as I am planning on building my own and designing a preamp for it myself. Obviously this way the pickup can have any specs, however I thought it would be good to follow conventions.

look on the EMG site (or any other site for active bass pickup manifacturers) for their bass pickups, they generally have tech specs on it.
