Beginner here, but saving up for a nicer electric bass. Was wondering what the differences are between an active vs. passive pick up's? I'm mostly intersted in playing 60-70's rock and some blues and classic country and from what I've gathered thus far is passive would be the way to go with those genere's. I'm assuming active P.U.'s are more advantagious for heavy metal work?? Any feedback is appreciated!
