Lakland preamp bypass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by jaeman111, Aug 15, 2005.

  1. I own a Lakland 55-02, and it is the first bass I have owned that has a pull pot to bypass the active circuitry. I was curious as to whether or not leaving the bass plugged in would drain the battery if the preamp was in bypass. I currently unplug it after every set or whenever I put it on its stand, I am a little OCD about it. If I could leave it plugged in and not worry about draining the battery, I think maybe I could sleep at night again... Just kidding. (Hmm, did I leave it plugged in today when I left for work?)

    Thanks in advance,

    If it's plugged in, it's on. Even in bypass.
  3. Thanks Bill, that's what I figured...
