The PVA5 HZ pickup is based on the original EMG PHZ but utilizes Alnico 5 magnets instead of ceramic. This gives the PVA more output and more emphasis on the high and low end. Because the PVA5 utilizes Alnico 5 magnets coupled with short, squat coils, the tone is warm, rich, and has less noise than most stock P bass pickups. For those who seek a warmer passive P pickup tons of low-end and a vintage look and tone, the PVA5 is a natural choice. Complete with EMG's solderless wiring control kit, this pickup is a breeze to install on your own.

Very Decent

Shawnzy /Reviewed 10/2/2018

I put this set in a kit I built and it's safe to say they sound much, much better than the ones that came with it. The tone sounds great in any position. No more honky mid ugliness. The tone control in full-on position went from unusable to growly. The output volume had a noticeable increase aswell. The wiring was super easy and the overall build quality of everything was fenominal. I wanted a high quality set that had that classic, passive p-pickup sound and that's what I got.
I went with the Ivory colour for extra steez and let me tell ya, they're steezy

Sick of your flat sounding nasty ol' P bass stinkin up the jam with some real farty sounding mids? Tired of your highs sounding muddy and disgusting? How about lows that sound like an old man reaching for the remote? Yeah, these fix that. Turn those farty mids into a solid landmass between the mountainous highs and the ocean of lows as pure unadulterated funk nasty erupts from your instrument. These things DESTROY. No P bass has any right sounding this damn good. And they came with some stickers, double bonus. Only downside is the wiring diagram's depiction of the included jack, it's not the same as what you receive so PAY ATTENTION!
