    I've owned this bass since late '99, and just discovered something interesting yesterday; if all three tone knobs (b/m/t) are turned all the way down, there is absolute zero signal passing through.

    I've never owned an active preamp that did this IIRC. It still sounds great, but this has me curious if anything has gone wrong?

    That's odd. Mine doesn't do that, but I have the NTMB preamp.

    Nope, that's normal. My 84 Hybrid does the same thing.
