    Hi guys,

    I have a Cort TM Stevens sig with the active pickups and was wondering if anyone can shed any light. I fitted a new 9V battery last week and haven't had chance to pick up the bass since. I tried to use it tonight and the battery was flat. Any ideas?

    The Funkwah was switched off and I left the bass plugged into the amp so I was wondering if any of you know what is eating my batteries?



    PS if this is a stupid question please forgive me as it is my first active bass

    Usually on active basses - they are using power all the time you have the lead/cord plugged into the bass. So the idea is that you have to take out the lead every time you are not playing!

    You say you left the bass "plugged in" - so I presume you had alead going from the bass to the amp for a week - that'll do it!!

    Take your lead out of the bass - every time you stop playing!
