Well even though I hate being the pessimist I should at least give you a heads up. Looks like you have the low down on active pickups but I doubt that you could find a low end 6-string bass and the vast majority of them come with active pickups. There was a comment as well about how they are virtually noise free. I would disagree. They are less noisy but depending on the amp and the pickup itself you will still get some noise. I just don't want you to try a bass, hear some noise and then think its broken. I could be way off on the availability of a low end 6 string so best of luck tracking one down.
