    I don't usually play with a pick, but I decided to today for various reasons. I found that when I strum with the pick directly over the pickup, the clip light lit up no matter what I set the gain at. I'm playing a passive fender p bass so I didn't think the output should be that hot. Am I damaging my equipment by doing this and how can I avoid it? Thanks.

    You aren't damaging your equipment. The only way to fix this is to switch from passive to active mode with the dipswitch next to the input. This will lower the input volume and keep your signal from clipping the preamp.
