The EMG JAX set-of-two is a bass pickup option based upon one of EMG's originals, the J model. This addition differs in that it uses Alnico V magnets instead of the ceramic magnets of the original. Because the JAX bass pickup uses Alnico V magnets coupled with short, squat coils, the tone is endowed with openness and warmth for a more vintage sound, all with less noise and more signal. EMG has no doubt that the JAX bass pickup set, with its natural presence, powerful lows, expansive midrange, and superior definition, will be as esteemed as its predecessor.
The EMG JAX bass pickup and other EMG pickups from the X-Series provide increased headroom, giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMGs are renowned for. EMG JAX pickups are best described as bridging the gap between passive and active tone.
The EMG JAX bass pickup package includes: EMG's exclusive Solderless Install System, a split shaft volume/tone control set, an output jack, a battery clip set, plus screws and springs.
A set of two bass pickups with vintage sound, an expansive midrange, and commanding lows.

Comments about EMG JAX Bass Pickup Set:
I love the EMG JAX sound because these pickups actually let you hear what your instrument should sound like. I can feel the instrument better and be more creative at the same time. No matter if you play at low volumes or crank it out these pick ups bring your instrument to life and allow you to be creative and use your instrument to its fullest.
Available in three colors to match just about any color combo. I cselected the white to match the finish on my four string signature series Marcus Miller Fender Jazz. The JAX series is plug and play so no drilling, cutting or soldering! The pick ups are direct replacements so they fit perfect. All volume,tone controls and input jacks are included also. The pick ups are super quiet! The tone is very vintage but mantains a very modern edge. Wide range of tones with what comes in the box. Add the EXB tone enhancer if you are a tone freak like me. I have the JX series in my natural color signature series Marcus Miller and the sound is more modern with a very mid range punch great for slapping. Install the JAX Series if you need a do it all tone. Awesome Funk,Rock,Jazz, R&B, Latin Etc.
Well I need to say it again first and far most quiet!!! Noisy pick ups on a bass is not cool or fun. Do not except anything lees than the best if you are serious about your tone. The wiring is professional quality. The pick up covers are strong and robust built to last. The Vol and tone pots are pro quality & again quiet. EMG = Quality. Quallity USA Manufactured Products.
The EMG JAX pickups are a great value because you can do all the work yourself and the result will be a professional look and sound every time.
