Like me, it seems all bassists are permanently looking for a better bass (or the perfect sound??).
Reading as many reviews as I can, I read that guitars are moving back to passive and away from active. Is this happening with basses?
And is the sound of passive fundamentally different from active? If I played a passive bass, with all knobs fully on (ie nothing cut down) and then the same bass with active set at neutral (ie nothing added or cut), would they sound the same?
