EMG J Bass Set
EMG started their production in 1976 and since then has gained a reputation as the most popular manufacturer of active pickups for electric guitars. As a result of this their pickups are standard equipment on many high-end models from manufacturers such as ESP, Schecter and Jackson. EMG active pickups tend to have much higher output than passive pickups of similar design because of the on-board preamp. This has made them popular with hard rock and heavy metal guitarists because they overdrive the input stage of guitar amplifiers more dramatically than lower output passive pick-ups.
EMG has also launched a line of passive pick-ups (EMG HZ) in which they make use of their many years of experience in manufacturing active pick-ups.
EMG pick-ups are used by Tom Morello, David Gilmour, Steve Lukather, Prince, Metallica, Slayer, Zakk Wylde, Dave Kushner, Children of Bodom, Deftones, Judas Priest, Rammstein, Killswitch Engage, Slipknot and many more…
Sweeping harmonic overtones and clarity, the EMG-J has a full bodied sound that adds new dimensions to your bass playing. Whether you play fretted or fretless bass, you'll get incredible sound yet retain that traditional tone. The original Fender Jazz Bass* pickup is a long, tall, thin pickup. That's why it has such a distinctive tone. The winding length of the coil is about 6 inches per turn resulting in a pickup that has a high DC resistance compared to its inductance. Its aperture is small for long wavelengths so there's less low frequency punch and an accentuated mid-range howl.
The EMG-J Pickups on the other hand, have a very low ratio of resistance to inductance that increases the low frequency response yet the EMG-J still maintains the narrow aperture for that typical Jazz Bass tone. Instead of the side by side Pole pieces the EMG-J uses a single-pole crescent shaped magnetic field to complement the radiused fingerboard. The result is a balanced output across the strings, and a linear attack from note to note. In addition to its standard four string capability, the EMG-J allows adaptation to use five strings.
Recommended maximum overall string width, however, is 2.75 inches (70 mm). The EMG-J comes complete with a prewired harness including dual volume controls, master tone control, output jack, battery clip and pickup adjustment screws. Also available as a separate unit is the EMG-LJ, which is the longer of the two pickups in the EMG-J Set and is usually located in the bridge position.
Package Includes: EMG's exclusive Quik-Connect™ cables (2), prewired control set including 2 volume controls, master tone control, output jack, battery clip, and adjustment screws.
Options Available: Black, White, or Ivory cover cap.
