First of all, hello, this is my first post here I am using now a '93 stingray 5 (great bass!!!), ampeg svt3pro, ampeg 410 HLF, symetrix 501 compressor, and maybe sans amp bass driver DI. I have a question if you can help me: It is a good ideea to bypass the active electronics in my stingray? My ideea is that I use a tube preamp anyway to shape my sound, and I always keep the settings on the MM on "zero". I believe that the active electronics in my bass are adding dirt to the sound. What do you think?
