i wired the pickups passive with the stock 500k pots this sx bass came with! didnt get around to playing it much untill now..
when i play with a lot of attack (slap style or really digging in) the whole sound starts to distort, i tried another bass through the same amp to check and the amp is fine!
i am not sure if i heard this farty drive befores so am wondering maybe i have not wired them correctly.
because these are hotter and different than the single coils this bass came with should i be using pots of different value? any idea how should i wire them passively? right now i wired it like a regular jazz bass and it "should be" working fine but is is'nt!
ps - i was told these pickups work fine passively and they did seem to until today for some reason but its possible i just didn't play it hard enough till today! i dont know! help!?
