    Depends on how much you leave them plugged in (playing or not). I have 5 basses that I use in rotation, so batteries will last me 6 months. You can hear when they start to go bad.

    There, everything you need to know about batteries in one post!

  4. one more thing you should know, not all basses have batteries
  5. and if you do have an active bass, leave it unplugged, as leaving it plugged in wastes battery
