I have done some research talked to a few Seymour Reps, but all I get is positve. It's too good to be true. Anyone have any personal experience with this?
Is there any negativity at all to the BMP-1?!

How is it too good to be true? It's a clean boost that goes into your guitar. People have been doing this for years. This one just has no-solder connections and a better marketing team.

The negativity is that it has all the drawbacks of a boost without any of the benefits of active pickups. You still have the higher magnet pull and noise coming off your passive pickups, and on top of that have a boost that's going to add noise and require adding a battery and rewiring your guitar. The only actual benefits are "louder" and "slightly more convenient". Plus, it's not going to fit in a lot of guitars.

Humbug.

Well, I have been led to believe that these mimic the Seymour Duncan Blackouts. In every aspect. I was going to get them to save a couple hundred bucks in buying them and having to re-wire my guitar.

So I guess the question is; do they have the same ability as blackouts, both distorted and non?

EMG used to or still does make a "afterburner" which was a variable boost that was activated with pulling on the volume or tone knob. tons more output, TONS more noise when playing. unless you were using just a tad it was way to fuzzy loud and just sucked.

if you want a clean boost, buy one as a stomp box, or even an EQ, but the EQ wont have the same amount of gain.

it is nothing like blackouts. to some degree you get what you pay for and there are not too many corners you can cut if you really want you tone to be at its best.
