: I've got a bass with active pickups, and I got the question if they take power from the battery all the time since there isn't an off switch. And I couldn't answer that. Anyone know if it does or not?
: If it doesn't, how does it work exactly? I mean, what turns it on or off.
: (If anyone got a good link that would explain all the electonics involved with active pickups, not just my question, I'd like to have the link)
The pickups are "on" when a cable is plugged into the bass. When there is no cable, there is no power draw on the battery. -B
