    NONE HAVE ANY INFORMATION ?! PLease i need ur help..
  3. ok, i'll help.
    I don't have a bfx-708 II, nor have i ever used one, but i took a look at the online manual, and i saw something on pickups there...are you talking about the little section on page 33? that won't really change your sound, all it does is change the input gain on the pedal by cutting it down a few db. i think the default is already passive.
    so basically all it does is lower the volume so you can have more headroom for your active EQ (if you've got one)
    it's like the -15 db that some amps have.

    hope that helps
