hey I got a dumb question

are active electronics/pickups mainly for jazz bassists? could a metal or rock bassist benefit from them?

I play fingerstyle on an old passive Hamer Blitz bass that I plug straight into an Ampeg SVT rig (head + 8x10 cab) and I love the sound. would installing active electronics and pickups just give me more eq control? what are the main advantages? headroom? gain?

thanks a lot...Alex Pesci
