I know it's probably been discussed before but last night at rehearsal, my active Tobias' battery went dead on me and I had no spares therefore had to run to a store to get a couple of batteries and losing 30 minutes rehearsal time. At that moment, I got disgusted and just decided that I'm going to go back to passive instruments. So now I'm looking at buying a good 5 string passive bass. Besides the Fender American V and the Fender Roscoe Beck V, what other makers of fine (or mid level) instruments offer passive 5 stringed basses?? I'm budgeting myself at $1000 tops!
