    I just read on the Cort website that the Cort Artisan A' and B's have an "active/passive push-pull switch".


    However, I can't find this on my bass, which is a A5 with Bartolini MK1 preamp. Is the information on the Cort website wrong, or are there something that I haven't discovered? I'm happy with the preamp's sound, but perhaps I'd be even more happy with the passive sound. :)

    Push/pull usually refers to one of the pots. Try pulling up on your volume knob.

    Embellisher is right..just pull the volume knob. I have a Cort GB44 and that is how it works.

  4. That looks like a really good bass..

    OK.. Comonlly those switches are in the volume pot.

    Thanks for the input!

    Hmmm, neither the volume knob or any of the other knobs seem to be push/pull...??

    If I remember correct, there was an old Artisan model with Mitymite electronics, that perhaps had a push/pull switch?
