Yamaha RBX-375 question
I was offering to trade my acoustic/electric Epiphone El Capitan for a fully electric bass and I got an offer for a Yamaha RBX-375.
While the reviews seem great, one thing I've noticed is that it takes batteries for some reason.
What would a fully electric bass need batteries for? I tried to find this online but couldn't find an answer. I know that for my acoustic/electric bass, it takes batteries for the pick-up but I can't see why it would on a regular electric bass.
Could anyone give me insight to this? Thanks.
Active basses typically have a built-in preamp and EQ circuitry that has boost as well as cut.
Active EQ, passive pickups. Personally, I had one of these for about a week & returned it. They feel cheap, the EQ isn't that great and I couldn't get the thing set up well, even with 2 luthiers looking at it. :( I would pass on it.
There are also acoustic basses that don't need batteries. It all depends on the type of pickup used.
