    Good point.

    Like my beautiful Hohner. Simply flip the switch.
  5. ..Like my\anyone else's L2500...

    JMX...that is such a good point!
  6. I love the passive, but from playing with my band and developing tendonitis, I definately need the boosted output...so I'm going to put my favorite preamps into my P-Bass and J-bass...Bartolini. I also know that Bartolini has a output booster circuit you can put into your bass to boost the output 6 dB.
