    Lately ive been having a problem with my bass with actives in it. While im playing the volume will randomly drop and the only thing that brings it back is if i tap the back of my bass. Ive already tried changing the battery but it didnt make a difference. Has anyone had a similar problem/know the solution?

    Sounds like 1 or more loose solders or wires back there in the active electronics. If you're not experiences in tracking the problem down yourself I suggest you take it to a decent tech person.

    Maybe a loose connection somewhere? Check your wiring and make sure all the soldered connections are tight.
