The original EMG J Set became an instant hit with its sweeping harmonic overtones, punch and quite operation. This pickup set has classic jazz bass characteristics with a broader tonal frequency range that adds dimensions and clarity to your bass playing. EMG's design has a very low ratio of resistance to inductance, which increases the low end response, while the radiused ceramic bar magnet ensures the tone keeps a tight mid-range punch with dynamic high end response. Whether you play fretted or fretless, live or in the studio, you'll get an incredibly full sound with these bass pickups.

SEEING (& HEARING) RED !!!

BIGSTIX /Reviewed 3/20/2018

Recently swapped out all electronics on 2 Warwick Corvettes - a ’94 w/active pickups/passive EQ/18v & an ’04 fretless w/passive/passive. The project began because of a bad output jack on the ’94. I figured, while I’m @ it, why not replace the pots & upgrade to ‘solderless’ ??? Then I saw the ‘RED’s & thought, ‘RED’ would be ‘KOOL’. The fretless had the original volume/balance/tone set-up & I wanted to convert it to volume/volume/tone, so swapping out everything & going ‘solderless’ made sense there, too.
First things first: ‘SOLDERLESS’ is the only way to go - Warwicks use a ‘long panel’ output jack, so had to solder 3 tabs on the ‘active’ & 2 on the ‘passive’, but other than that, what a super-EZ, super-clean, goof-proof install !!!
TONE: the ’94 already had ‘EMG-J’s, so the TONE from the new ‘RED’s was the return of an old friend - clear, articulate & punchy w/lotsa ‘fundamental’ & w/18v, there’s headroom to spare. The fretless received a new set o ‘EMG-JHZ’s, which added more dynamics & punch to an already smooth axe. Both new set-ups have exceeded my expectations.
Many THANKS to the folks @ EMG !!!
