Increases low-frequency response while maintaining traditional tone.
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.
