If you are upgrading your PUPs, certainly choose 40DC

13.01.2017
First of all, if you are deliberating between active & passive pickups, there is little doubt on most of the Bass forums that the consensus is overwhelmingly in favour of Active EMGs. Even if you don't have a battery recess in your bass, the 9V battery can easily be accommodated inside a standard tone pot cavity. I did this with my Peavey Grind 5 string, simply purchased a plastic 9V battery holder from Ebay, then epoxied it to the inside of Tone pot cavity cover.
Its firmly in place and does not interfere with the pots.
But the sound... its fantastic. Replacing the indifferent pickups in the Peavey with a pair of 40DC's was the best upgrade I ever made, the range of tones, clarity, sensitivity and quietness, you can't really beat these, without spending 300 or more Euros on boutique electronics..
I play metal, doom and technical death varieties, the low end growl I get now is priceless! Also, the solderless electroncs system and pot set is just another reason I love these pickups! Its all included and was a joy to set them up. Only one thing! They require weird US sized nobs, the two tiered, `Babel' style - single barrel nobs wont fit -

Totalmente Soddisfatto

02.09.2015
Questi pickup sono decisamente ottimi! Costruiti con materiali molto resistenti e completamente sigillati per impedire che si depositi polvere o sporcizia varia sui fili di rame. Sono di facile installazione con istruzioni scrupolose e dettagliate e soprattutto non c'è bisogno di saper saldare per poter collegare i vari oggetti perché i cablaggi sono tutti ad innesto rapido. Ho installato due di questi EMG su di un Tobias Toby Pro5 e calzano veramente a pennello. Ottima resa di volume e toni facilmente gestibili direttamente sullo strumento tanto da poter passare con estrema facilità da suoni più "rotondi" tipo funky a quelli più "acidi" tipo metal o punk.
