Ok, it's all fun and games until my bass craps out. I was playing my 55-94 today and suddenly I can't hear it. It's been cutting out a bit in the last week or so. Get's more quiet. I thought I was just imagining it or something, but today it quit all together. Can't hear it at all with the active electronics on. I can hear it fine with the passive mode. Push the knob in, and it's up and going in passive mode. "No big deal" "Need to replace the battery" Well, I did, and still nothing. I gave the old battery a lick (doh!) and got a little shock. The new battery hasn't helped. What could it be? If I have to ship to Lakland...how do you ship a bass anyway? What kind of carton or whatever do you use? Thanks, Captain W.
