  • EMG's in a Minion Bass?

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EMG-PJ-Ba...cAAOSwoCNfdgJU

    I have to pile on a lot of gain at the HZ input of my interface to get a reasonable signal out of my Minion Bass. Would fitting this EMG set improve the output signal?

    Fuck ebay, fuck paypal

        you're plugged in with a guitar cable to one of the two inputs in the front of the unit? if that's the case, I would think the interface would have plenty of gain to work with passive pickups. if it doesn't (as you've indicated), getting louder pickups (active or passive... in my experience active emgs are not really louder than your general "hot" passives, though they may be more present) should help.

          you could always preamp it like I did to my JS1M

            Preamp it? I'm not sure what you mean. Some circuit I can wire in?

              EMG PA2 (EMG says it's for guitar but I can't imagine why it wouldn't work for bass)

              Also the BTC system is interesting...https://www.emgpickups.com/catalog/p...z/category/89/

                yes as an alternative you could always just leave the stock pickups in and add a preamp to it.
                Or just toss a p/j set of emgs in it with the bas/treb/vol setup and use a stacked bas/tre pot so you can still keep the 3 knobs
