  1. What is the purpose of having a preamp? And I'm not the one in an active bass(which i think only makes it more versatile?)

    There's many different things people use them for. Mostly what I use it for is small corrections in EQ while playing. Some songs I can change tone completely even - which is needed for one cover my bands does. Also, you generally have a hotter signal.
