So I'm shopping for pick-ups and I started reading about active pick-ups and now I'm curious. Anyone here use them? I have a 2019 LP Classic and I was thinking about putting Gibson 500T/496R pick-ups in it since the original owner swapped out whatever Gibson pick-ups it came with. These are passive, higher output pick-ups but I'd like to consider other options as well. I know the basic technology behind active pick-ups. Do all of them need to be powered with a 9v?
