I had a question about my warwick... I know it was dumb of me to purchase one without knowing all the facts about the bass, the pros and cons. I really looked up to some bassists out there and they had Warwicks and I loved the sound. So I got me one. A 5-string Warwick Corvette Standard. now my questions... An active bass is a bass that has a preamp and uses a battery to power it right? Can someone give me info active basses, the pros and cons. If there is a thread already send me a link. What drains the battery? I find the battery dying on me a lot, and im not sure what causes it and what I can do to make it last longer. Can someone help me out? I heard all Warwicks are active basses. True? If anyone has links to some good info on Warwick basses. Something I can read to get a better understanding of my bass and how it works. Things I can add or take out, switch, to make the sound better. Stuff like that... Thanks in advance for the replies, I appreciate it.
