I haven't posted for a while, so I figure some donuts and coffee might be in order bigrin

I am planning on buying an M1 for my Epi Masterbilt AJ-500RVS but I am somewhat unsure of which I should get.  For those of you who have experience with these pickups, is there any real difference in sound?  I am leaning towards the passive running through a PADI, but I would be interested in the active if it is a better option.  I play at church and would prefer to have control over my eq, the reason for the passive/PADI combo, but am open to opinions.  I know the newer PADI's have a gain stage where as older uints did not.  Since the M1 active has volme control would it pair well with an older PADI?

Thanks in advance for any and all help!

LR Baggs M1 Active is far superior to passive, no external pre-amp required. I haven't used passive in years.
