I'm a fan of passive basses.
I mainly don't like active basses simply because you're relying on more electricity. Another thing I've noticed is particularly when it comes to cheaper basses with active circuits. They often use cheap pickups, because the sound is crap when the EQ is set flat. Very thin until you start boosting frequencies.
A passive Fender P generally blows these basses out of the water IMO.
