EMG J Set

Pickup Set for Electric BassWhile the colleagues of the 6-string fraction often have a rather conservative view towards active pickups, bassists are more open and willing to experiment. Thus the EMG bass pickups have been enjoying great popularity for many years.

A classic for almost five decades is the jazz bass single-coil. The EMG version (here its in a set: neck and bridge pickup) is characterized by the absence of any noise. Also an audible reinforcement of the mids in true sense of the word come into effect, which is why the J-set provides a good amount of punch and definition, without giving up the benefits of the jazz bass sound.

  • J-Style
  • Neck and bridge pickup
  • Clear sound, with accentuated mids and many overtones
  • Incl. Quik-connect cable, pre-wired controller set with 2 volume knobs, master tone control, output jack, battery clip and screws

Great pickups

24.03.2017
I really like them! I ve been using emg?s since the late 80`s! I have them on most of my basses! They soung great, are reliable and quiet, versatile in any situation especially in the studio! I find it hard to understand that people find them sterile and too clean sounding? If you have a decent bass and you can play your instrument I think they sound great! Ask any top pro! I even put these in myself! No soldering!
Highly unusual that this time I had two pickups the same lenght in the box! Thomann immediately replaced them! The second time I was a volume pot short! Again Thomann replaced them and told me to take what I needed from the both! I did this and returned the rest! Annoying, but great and friendly service from Thomann! It must be an unusual fault with emg Quality control? Anyway my Fender jazz bass sounds splendid!! Many thanks Thomann!

Pretty easy to fit, expecially if you have a recent EMG preamp

25.08.2015
I'm a long time user of EMG pickups as I owned at least 50 old Warwicks and they usually had EMG jazz pickups.
Their new version is solderless, this means you don't need to solder them to the preamp IF the preamp is from the same company and isn't too old.
The sound... well, not easy to describe as of course it's heavily affected by the instrument you put them on. But they're clean sounding, edgy pickups very good for slap, tapping and also pick playing. I would NOT recommend them for fretless, though, where they sound a bit too sterile and you might want AlNiCo5 pickups (smoother, warmer, darker).
