The PAX pickup is similar to our EMG PA bass pickup, but with the addition of the X Series preamp. The X preamp offers greater dynamic control and touch sensitivity, bridging the gap between passive and active tone and feel. Because the PAX utilizes Alnico V magnets coupled with short, squat coils, the tone is open and rich, with a vintage character. For those who seek an active P bass pickup with a more vintage tone and feel, the PAX is an excellent choice. Complete with EMG's solderless wiring control kit, this pickup is a breeze to install on your own.

Very good sounding P-bass pickup

Orlandez /Reviewed 7/14/2019

Dear fellow P-bass players,
Looking for thump and punch in a super clear fashion?
Don’t look any further, this PAX pickup from EMG is what you need ... clearer than the majority of passive AlNiCo V pickups, the PAX sounds punchier and righties without sacrificing the low-end, which is very well developed and present.
I put it on an old P-bass clone of mines, alongside with a set of flat-wound strings and ... WHOA! the bass sounded decidedly better than my Fender Am. Pro. P-bass .. best surprise of 2019! Highly recommended.
Only drawback is that you need space for a battery in the control cavity .. EMG may consider re-designing the electronics in order to occupy less “vertical” space in the cavity, allowing the battery’s installation below the pits without any need for routing the body !
