EMG along with legendary artist Geezer Butler have collaborated to develop the EMG GZR PJ HZ passive pickup set. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame bass player started working with EMG founder Rob Turner in 2011, looking to recreate the classic bass tones he had in Black Sabbath's early days. As Geezer and Black Sabbath moved from studio to touring in 2013 the final component of getting the classic Geezer tone was in play - a passive pickup with a truly vintage tone and feel.

To recapture Geezer's early Black Sabbath tone, the pickups feature Alnico V pole pieces and custom wound coils for just the right amount of punch and grit. The result is an unmistakable early Geezer Butler bass tone with deep, tight low end that you hear on tunes like "Iron Man," "War Pigs," and "Paranoid," just like the 1970's.
