    I am looking for a Yamaha BB415 but have been offered a very good trade for a nice 615. I know that the Yamaha 415 is passive and the 615 is active.

    If I wanted to convert the 615 to passive - would I have to do more than remove the preamp and change the wiring? Or put in a bypass switch?

    Any one know if the pickups the same? Thanks for any help.

    Hey - I found an old TB entry where the OP converted his 615 to passive - so it seems it CAN be done without too much difficulty. Maybe just a pot with pull switch.

    Thanks anyway gang.
