Over the past several years I've been using MusicMan basses (Stingrays, Bongos and Sterlings) and most recently I had a Carvin SB5000 bass. They all were great basses and I would have no problem playing them again but I have been playing a passive jazz bass lately and I just really like the tone for some reason. I recorded with it and it sounded so nice in the mix. I don't know if its the simplicity of it or what but I just am really enjoying using a passive Jazz Bass right now. Has anyone else recently made the switch from active back to passive? What was your reason for switching?
