      Comments about EMG P-X Active Bass Pickup Set:

      A few years back I picked up a 2008 American Fender P-Bass on a whim. While, it was a fantastic instrument, I couldn't quite get the sound I wanted with the stock pickups. After heavily considering a Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder, I decided to go the active route because of the enhanced headroom and added clarity.

      Once the pickups arrived i installed them (along with the BTC Tone System I picked up from StewMac) and I was in tonal bliss. My amp is a Markbass Little Mark Tube (But I mostly use virtual instruments inside Pro Tools) and I have to say, the combination of the pickup and amp combination is absolutely incredible.

      Comments about EMG P-X Active Bass Pickup Set:

      Fantastic pickups! Sounds amazing live and even more gorgeous in the studio. Swift and easy setup and its ready to go in 5 minutes. Only flaw to this system is that you need to make a spot for the battery to fit in. I had to take a Dremel to the body in order to fit the battery into my P Bass body.
