    In some basses yes you can hear, in some basses, no it just shuts down. I dont tihnk its worth it to install that thing though, just stay ontop of your battery life. You can test 9volts by putting both things on your tongue, i dont suggest it if you are freaked out by eelctricity or any discomfort in general,but you can tell how much life the 9 volt has by how strong the charge is on your tongue.

    Yes, im 1% an idiot for doing this,but w/e, lots of you have done it, no denying.
     
  3. The tounge test method is the best for sure :D

  6. I have a 9v on my tounge right now! mmmmm. :D


    Cool little gadget, but if you are playing regularly just change your battery on a weekly\monthly schedule and you should be fine.

    Always keep an extra in your gig bag or case. If you forget and your bass craps out, put it in passive.
