How can i find out what kind of pickup I have - ie. active or passive?
Take the cover off the back of your bass - if there are any batteries in there (9V most likely), then your pickups are active. Passive pickups don't have any battery.
Hope that helped...
passive pickups dont have a battery but an EQ system would. Many basses have passive pick-ups with an active EQ.
If your bass doesnt have any Cut/boost controls but does have a battery, then it has active pickups.
