Cirrus Wiring question

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Misty Mountain, Aug 6, 2012.

  1. Does anyone know if it is possible to wire a Cirrus (BXP, Indonesian) for a switch to choose between active and passive. Since this has active p'ups and an active pre, not sure if it's possible or not. It's a dead battery work-around in case they fail during a song, not a tone issue. It's a fear, it hasn't actually happened, and I change batteries every 6 months or so, but just in case...

    I don't think you can do that (go passive) with the Peavey active pups. I swap the batteries out on my Millennium twice a year as well.
    I keep a spare set of batteries & a small phillips-head screw driver in the gig bag for that "just in case" moment. You can generally hear when the batts are starting to go; loss in volume, subtle shift in tone (as in muddish or fuzzy). I would hope (we) would notice this a bit before the batteries completely ran out of juice. ;)
