I'm going to to be looking for a new bass later this summer, mainly because my current bass (conklin gt5) has very low output. it has a 2 band conklin pre-amp and conklin pups. when i compare it to my passive squire P the volume is barely over half of the squire's. the result is the active bass not being loud enough to play with drums and just one guitar through an ampeg b2r > 2x12 portabass cab. do you think my conklin is one of the lower output basses out there or can i expect a similar output from say...a stingray 5 or a new active mtd kingston heir? if i have to go passive to retain the volume i wouldnt mind a lakland skyline JO5.
