I have just bought this great Yamaha RBX800AF fretless.
Being an active bass could someone just confirm to me the knob configuration?
Is it from top left to right: Volume, Blend and bottom right to left Bass and Treble?
Plug it in. Turn the blend knob all the way over to one side, then tap each pickup with something metallic like screwdriver to see which one responds - now you've found which direction controls which pickup.
Volume is self explanatory. So is figuring out the bass & treble controls since you will hear what each one affects.
Being active has nothing to do with it - all controls operate the same way.
I have a fretted version and I like it a lot. Personally I had no use for the preamp, I felt it was too harsh. I pulled the pickups/pre and now run passive P/J's.
Good luck with yours.
