    Ok so knowing fully that I will look like an idiot I have to ask this really really really dumb question.

    Is the Spector Legend 5 Classic an active or a passive bass :confused: I know it's probably a really dumb question to most who read this but I love Spector and I really want a cheap Spector with an active preamp. So yea please tell this poor little unseasoned 3rd year bassist what the poop this bass is. :help:

    Dank you :D

    Quick search provided (from Musician's Friend):

    Spector Legend Classic 5-String Bass Features:
    NS body
    Quilted maple top
    3-piece rock maple bolt-on neck
    35" scale
    24-fret rosewood fingerboard
    Deluxe cast bridge
    Black hardware
    High-impedance, passive, USA EMG-SSD pickups
    Spector Tone Pump Jr.
    2 -band active tone circuit:hyper:

    BTW: The only thing that made it a really, really, really dumb question was you saying it was! Search is good though, search is good!
  3. What's confusing is that it has passive pickups but an active preamp. That still makes it an active bass, because the preamp requires a battery. The Legend Classic's are great basses.
  4. There are no dumb questions on TB,only dumb answers.

    Glad I could help. ;)

    Not a stupid question at all. Everybody's new at one time or another.

    A bass can't be active - the preamp, and occasionally the pickups, are active. So yes, that particular bass has active electronics.
