    Inspired by this post in the thread about the search for mids in a Traynor amp:

    Short of finding the correct user manual, is there a way to determine whether the EQ on a vintage amp is active or passive? Also: does the active/passive nature of the EQ section make a substantive difference in how a user applies each EQ control in conjunction with the gain and master volume?
