I have a Vigier Excalibur Ultra guitar with active EMG81/EMG-SA/EMG85 pickups. Do I have to take this in account to choose volume pedal? Because I want to use with passive and active guitar pickups. Thank's!!
What happen if I connect my active guitar to a passive volume pedal?
The response to the sweep won't be the same. But it will work. If you put an active volume after a passive pup it will load the pups and suck the tone. So you are better with a passive volume pedal after an active pup than an active volume pedal after a passive pup. The diff is active volumes pedals are low impedance and passive pedals are high impedance.
I think there are a couple of companies (Ernie Ball being one IIRC) that make volume pedals specifically for active pickups.
