Hi everybody. My first active bass was a Washburn Axxess (XS-5? I still don't know anything about this instrument) that had two EMG Jazz pickups and could work in active/passive mode thanks to a push/pull switch. The bass used a 9V battery and the difference could definitely be heard when switching modes. As far as I understand, all active basses have at least 3 EQ controls: Lows, mids and highs, which won't work in passive mode (if the bass has that option, of course). But I've just remembered that the Axxess had just a standard tone knob (No 3-band EQ). Is that possible? I mean, was it really an active bass? Just curious. Thank you in advance for your input.
