I want to buy a bass but do not know whether to buy one with active or passive pickups? The active ones seem to be more expensive. Why? And which one is more general for playing --- meaning suitable for most kind of bass styles with decent/clean sound.And which type of string is more suitable for playing fast baseline (not just slapping). And will different types of strings affect the performance of the active/passive pickups?
