Why does Journey use passive pickups?

Why does Journey use passive pickups?

Because they’re awesome. Seriously. We spent years designing our pickups to be maintenance free with great transparent and balanced sound reproduction. Travel guitars have a rough life – they are frequently played, and then stored for a while, and then played again in another season. They’re also taken in regions that are hot or cold, and they get shaken around in transport. This kind of life makes for high battery consumption, and is high risk for complicated electronics. By using premium German piezo electronics, we get a solid signal with a great tone that’s completely maintenance free – and they’re more eco friendly to boot! If you have any doubts to our sound reproduction check out this video.

Recently we have developed our own upgradeable active pickup system as well. You can find them here.
