EMG PJ Set Bass Guitar Pickup Set

Three time Bass Player Magazine's "Player of the year" Victor Wooten knows a thing or two about playing bass. Victor has been using EMG's since he got his first Fodera bass years ago. Victor plainly states that EMG Pickups have helped him achieve his tone and refine his technique.

The EMG-PJ combines the EMG-P and a single EMG-LJ unit in a complete assembly giving you improved flexibility for dimensions of sound. The PJ enables a wide range of tone blends from your bass. The EMG-P has a full complement of low register power. The EMG-LJ provides a full midrange and extended high frequency response for a well defined attack. Used separately, or in combination, they offer a flexible selection of bass tones, accommodating both modern and traditional bass playing styles. The result is pure capability; the capacity to produce everything from tight slap funk to smooth Motown groove, all with a sound that'll set you apart. The PJ comes with a prewired control set that includes dual volume controls, master tone control, battery clip and output jack.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of EMG products.

"New Life for and Old Bass"
Sound: I put these pickups in my crappy Peavey passive Millennium P-Bass. I carved out a spot for the LJ pickup as well for the battery, and a hole for the extra pentometer (volume knob). The result was well worth it! These pickups made my bass sound like a good bass. I have since bought another bass but I am keeping my Peavey because of its unique quality, and sound. Quality: Beautiful! With the active bass comes the possibility of a dead battery. This has yet to happen but I always keep a spare 9V in my case. Value: This is a great buy. To those intermedeate to advanced players looking to buy a bass. One idea is to buy an old/ cheaper bass and put a set of good pickups in it, like these.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "what a long road....I traveled to make this happen."
Overall: EMGs are amazing. The solderless install the first time is a nightmare. The directions are not super clear, they appear to be but many important points are left out as in you do not really have to solder if you can take the tips off of the leads to route through the cavity on your bass.etc. There honestly should be a separate card that shows how to do this. I attempted to solder (much experience in soldering) my connections but as my instrument had a totally shielded cavity I could not complete the install. It drove me crazy. There was not a mention of do not place within or on top of copper shielding... All in all the pickups sound fantastic, I installed 18 volt system but I had to re-order a separate pj wiring kit, then a ABC pan, one tone control was bad, and I ordered a separate tele switch just incase the ABC turned out to be crap. The p bass polarity was off between my e a and dg pickup so the abc pot in the middle sounded phasey and hollow... I am glad I have the perseverance I have and the experience I think most folks would of just thrown the whole deal in the garbage. It cost me an extra 80 bucks on top of the 199 but what are you gonna do...a simple addition to the instructions sheets would help immensely. Support at EMG was great I will say, and they fed ex me a new tone control to replace the dud. Glad its over but two cards should be added. The first stating "if you have shielding......" and to insure solderless connection here is how you remove plugs from lead..." No info on youtube about that.. Also connecting the pickup set outside the guitar and plugging into a small combo amp first before routing thru the bass is highly recommended. Even with doing this I still mis connected the polarity on the pbass pickup as mentioned above. My one of a kind bass sounds as good as any active bass I have ever owned.....the red pickup color attracts comments too...how about some avocado or coppertone? just like the 70's....
