This may be a dumb/noob question, but I have an amp with active and passive inputs. When running a lot of effects, especially dirt and a preamp, would I be better off plugging into the active input even though my bass is passive,? I can't go test it right now because the kid is asleep, I just had this thought. Sometimes my dirt sounds squished through my neck pickup. Would this help? I don't want to plug my preamp into the fx loop because I like the extra tone shaping from my amp's eq.
