I have a lot of EMG pickups installed in many of my basses. What can I say, installing the preamp system with the same pickups is a breeze. Soundwise is very modern. It also depends on which pickups you use, but the strength and clear sounds this preamp gives is really nice. Also the tonal variation you can get from the BQC system is wide and flexible. It's an active system. If you like simple things and passive systems, stay away from this, but if you're on the active side and love variation, this is definitely for you ;)
I had a spector bass with passive EMG pickups for years. Then after hum issues in a certain venue I decided to upgrade to an active pickups and preamp. As I had 4 pots with the previous controls there actually wasn't a lot of choice in which preamp to get. The BQC was fairly painless to install...took about an hour and a half. I opted for the double 9V battery and it only *just* fitted in the control cavity. The sound is like night and day however, much more open than the passive pickup and the signal level is enormous. I had a fishman DI previously to improve the old sound of the passive pickups, by the BQC gives so much control I'm considering selling it.
