Here is a new guy question for you. If I were interested in playing Jazz style with hammer-ons on the neck, Would it be better to have active electronics to pick-up the sound better? I was watching a Victor Wooten (my idol) performance, and he seems to be barely tapping the strings, while I have to press hard, and still get bad hammers on my MIM Jazz bass. My action is set good and low, so I do not think that is an issue. I realize I am playing with a lower grade instrument. But when I upgrade to the next level, I want to make sure I head in the right direction.
