    I have an active Carvin B24 that I love, but the output volume is much lower than my Fender MIM P bass or Yamaha BB424X(both passive). It appears there's a volume trimpot inside the electronics cavity of the Carvin. Is there any negative of just turning that up? e.g. long term wear issues, tone differences, distortion, etc. I don't know very much about electronics(obviously) but I don't want to damage or prematurely wear out the bass. The main reason I'd like to balance the outputs between my basses is because I like messing around with effects. compressor, phaser, envelope filters, fuzz/overdrives, etc.
     
  2. The trim pot was literally engineered for the purpose of doing what you want to do. Use it! That's why it's there.
