    Hi. I have an old Tune bass. This bass is active and has a P/J pickup configuration. The problem is the P only gives out about 10% of the normal volume. The J one sounds great. What is the likely cause of this problem?

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Hard to say without more info or pics. Is your front pickup set lower than the back? Have you opened it (the bass) up and looked for any loose connections?

    You are right, I guess it could be different things. Would it be likely the pickup went bad, or maybe the pot?
