So, we all know about companies like Iron Gear who make great pickups for very cheap prices, not charging us for the name. From what i've seen though, they only make passives so I was wondering, are there any companies that make great active pups but with the cheap price tag?

If you can help please do. And apologies if I made you think that i'd somehow gotten pickups to be invisible.

Are they any good? As in, on par with EMG's?

I've heard that they arent that great, but are halfway decent for the price, but the harmony central reviews say otherwise. Give them a try and see for yourself

Dragonfire makes pretty good actives
I tried them out in my buds axe, they sound pretty good, a bit muddy but nothing a few EQ adjustments won't fix.

Go for it, they're pretty good for their price.

Developed for Steve Lukather of Toto, the SAV is an overwound single coil pickup with hidden Alnico 5 pole pieces for tons of output and punchy attack.

EMG has worked with Steve Lukather of Toto for over 13 years now and the latest result is the EMG-SAV active pickup. Steve's playing style and writing have produced several Grammy's that EMG is proud to be a part of. They'll develop just about anything Steve wants (within reason) and that's just what happened when Ernie Ball was revising the "Luke" Guitar. Steve along with Dudley Gimpel from Ernie Ball figured they'd try some new things on the Luke. Dudley told EMG they were trying pickups from other makers and they had to deliver something great to stay in contention.

EMG developed the SAV and added their own special touch. The windings were increased for a meatier tone and they hid away the pole pieces for a more uniform look to the instrument (see the SL20 Pro-Series). Steve has always played a specially overwound SA pickup, so EMG used the original preamp from the SA pickup with flat Alnico 5 pole pieces hidden under the cover cap. The SA preamp gives the SAV its classic EMG sound while the flat poles put the pickup closer to the strings for more output and a punchier attack. The current EB Luke Guitar uses the model spec'd by Steve EMG calls the SLV.

Package Includes: EMG's exclusive Quik-Connect cable, prewired split shaft volume/tone control set, output jack, battery clip set, screws & springs.

You could go to build your own clone and buy their confidence boost. Build that into your guitar rather than into a separate enclosure and then add an on off switch to it. That'll give you an active boost and it only costs around $15.00.
Not taking any online orders.

I have honestly never seen a cheap brand which sells budget active pups.
I've seen the Ibanez ones(tested 'em out in a guitar too) They were pretty good sounding.
