The JAX Set is based off EMG's original J, but uses radiused Alnico V magnets instead of ceramic and our X Series preamp. This creates a tone that is warm and open for a more vintage sound with a broad frequency range and added dynamic response and feel. The JAX provides bass players with natural presence, powerful lows, and expansive midrange. With our X Series preamp on-board, this pickups set truly bridges the gap between passive and active tone - giving players the best of both worlds. Whether you play fretted or fretless you'll get an incredibly full sound with these bass pickups.

Awesome warmth and clarity!

Rey Jacob /Reviewed 7/25/2016

I have had the regular J Set in my Warwick Streamer Stage II bass for over 10 years and lately I have been wanting a deeper low end and smoother high end. After much research online, I decided to go with the JAX set and it definitely fits the bill! The JAX Sets sounds significantly warmer with a deeper sounding low end and a smoother high end due to the Alnico 5 magnets that are present, as opposed to the ceramic magnets that are in the regular J Set. Yet they still retain the clarity that EMG is known for. Also, the newer "X" Series preamp seems to create a tone that is more open with a broader frequency range and a more dynamic response and feel. Great job on these pickups EMG! I'm an EMG fan for life!
