Question for Cort A4 users

    I've recently bought my Cort A4 bass, and I have a very novice question. The active/passive switch: Which way is which??? :meh:
    (It may sound really stupid but I just couldn't figure it with my crappy Ibanez practice amp. :rollno:)
  2. I don't have my A4 in my hands right now, but I'd go with UP = ON.
    Try this: Turn the switch UP and turn the treble knob all the way down (or any of them, but I find treble to be more responsive). You should notice a huge change in your tone if the pre is ON.

    I have an A6. The switch is not active/passive, it simply turns the EQ off. If off, the knobs for lows, mids and highs will have no function.

    Ah OK. Thanks a lot!

    So well... What happened just now (which made me remember this post, too) is that my (2-weeks-new!) guitar started giving no sound. :eek: I thought it was a broken wire connection or something, because it still gave no sound even if I turned the switch on and off... And I was really worried because the guitar is pretty new, you see. :bawl:

    But then if it's not an active/passive switch, as you say, that should mean that my bass is active-only, and that it must be the battery. Well, I'm relieved. :smug:
