: Could someone explain the difference between active and passive pickups? I'm trying to figure out if it's worth me getting actives on my next bass.

:: Hey man!!!
With my little knowledge about it all I can say is:

Active basses have a more stronger signal, it means extra power and volume. Itīs usually powered by a 9 volt battery on board.

Some people prefer the "untouched" sound of a passive bass, but itīs a question of taste. In my humble opinion itīs good to have that "extra" power, you may need it...
