Simple question: are the pickups in MM Stingray 5's Active or Passive?
Thanks so much.
Well, all the MM's i've played were active.
All MMs are active except the passive version of the SUB
Stingrays have a 3-band active preamp.
sweet, thanks d00ds.
I believe its a passive pickup with active preamp and EQ. Theres no preamp in the pickup (like an EMG).
Correct, they have, like most non-passive basses, what is known as Active electronics.
Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding!
Figgy, tell him what we've got for him.
A brand neww----!!!
I'm not sure.
Hey, knowing what jack sells ... whatever the prize is works for me!
I'm still not sure if the original question was about that fine of a detail, or if he just wanted to know if the bass had active EQ. Pickup type is pretty much trivia when there is a preamp in front of it.
Pickups are passive...electronics are an active 3 band pre-amp.
It is a common misconception that Stingray pu's (both 4 and 5 string ones) are active because Stingray basses are active. They are passive pickups, they work perfectly ok in passive basses and they are a bit hotter than a standard J pu but not as hot as a standard P pu.
