Overview

Sweeping harmonic overtones and clarity, these active bass pickups have full-bodied sounds that add new dimensions to your bass playing. They have very low ratios of resistance to inductance that increase the low-frequency response, yet still maintain the narrow aperture for that typical Jazz Bass tone. Instead of the side-by-side pole pieces, the EMG-Js use single-pole crescent-shaped magnetic fields to complement the radiused fingerboard. So whether you play fretted or fretless bass, you'll get incredible sound yet retain that traditional tone.

Recommended maximum overall string width, however, is 2-3/4" (70 mm). The EMG-J bass pickups come complete with prewired harnesses including dual volume controls, master tone controls, output jacks, battery clips, and pickup adjustment screws.

Everything I Expected and More

By 

from Knoxville, TN

Comments about EMG-J Active Bass Pickup Set:

I have been a bass player for several churches, and continue to do so now on a weekly basis. I played bass in several church events and fundraisers aswell, but never really got the low-end and punch from my bass that I wanted. It always seemed a little too shallow, and behind the music in volume. I finally invested in an active set to replace the passive stock pickups, and I couldn't be happier (I also invested in a nice bass-booster pedal, which is phenomenal). I bring my 5-String SX Vintage Series Bass equipped with these EMGs every Sunday now, and the tone could not be more impressive. I recently bought a 4-String P-Bass Style Fretless for a more wide-range of sounds, and it won't be long before I stick some EMGs on it aswell. Also on a side note, running these EMGs through a nice Ampeg Bass amp, is a bass dream come true.

emg active bass pickups... easy

By 

from Michigan

Comments about EMG-J Active Bass Pickup Set:

as a replacement pickup it is hard to beat. Easy to install, sounds great! However, the input jack is designed to fit a pick guard. You may have to use some creative thinking to get your bass back in action. Save your old parts!

ALL IN ONE!!!

Comments about EMG-J Active Bass Pickup Set:

These pick-ups are all in one if you play metal and jazz, don't play with 2 basses and spent 300 extra dollers just by these pick-ups they seem like your playing with a dean metal bass but you look down and your playing a fender jazz bass.
