ok, once more the active vs passive question while recording the di'ed signal!!!

as i read an active di is quite good for active pickups but for passives it is just like 85 % of what could come in, right?? well, oz mentioned he never had issues with recoring passives through an active di, but the numbers and percentages you all listed said that there will (could) be some loss in quality.

my prob is that i will always record passive and active pickups in one session.
so, do i need an active and a passive di (like the j 48 + countryman) or would the countryman fit for both jobs.

i really don't want to spend that much money on things like di's but i try to get the best results.

please help a stupid drummer who is a bit confused by all these values!!
