OVERVIEW

Natural presence, powerful lows, punchy midrange, and superior definition

The EMG-P is the bass pickup of choice since it was developed. The EMG-P pickup, like all the original EMG's, went through a redesign in 1979. The original "Embossed EMG Logo" model made everybody sit up and listen. The pre-'79 models are still used by players like Lee Sklar and Alphonso Johnson. More than a few have gravitated to the EMG-P for stage performance and studio recording. The EMG-P uses short, squat coils that have very little resistance and plenty of inductance. Because the coils are not in series like the passive types, there's about twice as much low end as a passive pickup. Ceramic magnets are used to add clarity. Countless pros use it because they find it has a natural presence, powerful lows, punchy midrange, and superior definition.

The EMG-P Precision bass pickup features hum-free noiseless operation with an even-timbred response. The P design was adapted for Ned Steinberger and became the EMG-SS (Steinberger Sound) used exclusively on the Steinberger Headless Bass. In order to make the composite bass sound more natural, EMG added steel poles for warmth and midrange. In addition to the standard EMG-P Pickup, the EMG-P5 and EMG-P6 are available for use in five and six string basses, respectively.

Package includes: EMG's exclusive Quik-Connect cable, prewired solid shaft volume/tone control set, output jack, battery clip set, adjustment screws.
