Inside the EMG 45TWX are two independent pickups: a single coil and a humbucker with the X Series preamp for increased dynamic response and clarity. The single-coil mode is our JCSX pickup built with ceramic magnets and steel pole pieces for a rich, warm tone. The humbucker mode is our popular CSX (ceramic steel) dual-coil for a big, aggressive sound with a pronounced mid-range. The added X preamp gives both modes more headroom and touch response, bridging the gap between passive and active pickups. A push/pull volume (or tone) pot allows you to change from the rich clarity of a JCSX pickup sound to the fatness of the CSX humbucker. This six string bass pickup uses a 45 Extended housing that is 4.5 inches (115mm).

When using two of TWX Pickups in the same instrument it is not recommended that our BT or BQ Systems be used. Each pickup requires a push/pull pot for switching from single coil to humbucker, so the balance control included with the system can'’t be installed. If you want to use the balance control, consider switching single/dual coil outputs with a DPDT toggle switch(s) instead.

Most amazing pickups I've ever used.

Robert /Reviewed 10/14/2017

Wow. Where to begin? This is the 4th time I've had a complete EMG overhaul done on basses in my collection. Previously had 40DC/40J, dual 40DC's, dual JX set, and now the dual 45TWX. All have matching EMG preamps. From pillow-like finger funk in humbuckers, or cutting, brilliant, single coil slap, or anywhere in the middle... these are PERFECT. My Kiesel Vanquish multiscale VM49K has never sounded so good. And the even volume between all settings is divine.
