how do u tell if ur bass is an active bass or a passive bass????????
jeez people im not tryin to sound stupiud or funny i just dont know...
If you require batteries...you are active.
im a little confused here too. there are active pkups and active eq?? but an active onboard eq doesnt sets the pkups on active mode???
I've got a bass with active pkups and this just rises up the volume a little
please read this pickups faq thread: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=111547
You can have:
passive pickups, passive eq (i.e just a tone control)
passive pickups, active eq (bass/mid/treb)
active pickups, passive eq (i.e. EMG pickups with just a tone control)
active pickups, active eq (i.e. EMG pickups plus EMG BTC control)
Running passive pickups through a preamp does not make the pickups active. Passive pickups and preamp is the most common active implementation, as it generally lets you bypass the preamp in case the preamp / battery dies or if you just prefer the passive tone.
