My bass is set up to be played in passive or active mode. In the past I would just play my bass in active mode, until one day while changing my battery the battery clip broke. So I played in passive mode until I got the clip repaired. Once I had the clip replaced I decided to go back to active mode. After converting back I found out I like passive mode better. For some reason I could not stand active mode anymore. It's funny because I was always a fan of active basses. Have this ever happen to anyone else.
