Bad experience

By Rootboy Slim

from Jacksonville, Florida

Comments about EMG PJ-X Active Bass Pickup Set:

I bought these for my PJ Fender and never got them to work. I spoke with Rick at EMG and emailed him a picture of my wiring which he said was correct. He told me to send them directly to him and he would test them out. I took them to a guitar tech at GC and he told me he cringes when someone brings him a guitar with EMGs because the solderless system is a joke. He advised that I send them back which I did.

X series

By julian gallows

from knoxville Tn

Comments about EMG PJ-X Active Bass Pickup Set:

I love Emgs, but I'm a big fan of passives also. I am a firm believer that it depends on your application, ie. amp, guitar, stage, recording, etc. That being said, Three years ago I purchased a mexi jazz bass, enjoyed the sound, of the stock pups, but of course I am never satisfied. Knowing how big of a difference emgs, made in my six strings, I decided that was the way to go for bass also. Well I was wrong. They were extremely clear, and overly harsh. The lows, seemed overly compressed, and the highs were sharp as a razor, and the tone knob does very little after installation. A year later the emg x series is released, claiming to be more organic, so I put them into an ltd vintage 204, and this is what I think. They are definitely much more organic than the regular line, but I still find the highs too harsh,but they are actually controllable with the tone knob now, the lows don't seem to be nearly as compressed, but they still don't hit the sub harmonic lows, like my dimarzios, seymours, or delanos. I use this bass mainly for recording so they suit that need perfectly, but if your wanting a raw,vintage open sound with a lot of versatility then these probably are not for you, but if you want bright, tight, and cutting, then these are perfect!

Great bass pickups

By Gary Stevens - GS Custom Guitars

from Las Cruces, New Mexico

Comments about EMG PJ-X Active Bass Pickup Set:

I am a professional guitar and bass builder. I have been using EMG pickups since 1989. I just installed this set into a bass with a hollow mahogany body, birch/mahogany neck and a Cocobolo fretboard. I wired them with two 9 volt batteries for 18 volts. As always, these pickups are wonderful; clear with lots of headroom. Great with efects. I am playing through Mesa Quad Preamp and Mesa 295 power amp.
