Looking for some mutual shoulder crying here! I'm a big user of effects pedals, both bass oriented and regular guitar stuff. Never had a problem with my passive Warwick Corvette, with the exception of some tone sucking. However, my new baby, a custom Stingray, is overloading some of my pedals. I'm now looking at ways of addressing this, maybe with a Bassbone. Anyone else coming across this problem??? So, I'm now on a bit of a quest to research this issue. I've been trying all kinds of different pedals with all kinds of different active basses, mostly humbuckers, and I'm finding that a lot of effects units fail dismally when faced with the high output of modern basses. (or I suppose it could be impedance mismatch as well.) Units that have failed include; Bass Crybaby, Ibanez WH-10, Boss GT-6B and ME-50B (which makes me wonder what Wooten does!) and many others. The main one I keep coming across is distortion on the low end of a wah sweep. Turning down the basses volume works, but that's far from an ideal solution. Anyway, I'm just wondering how many of y'all have encountered this same thing!
