EMG JX set

Albrecht, 12.05.2010
My'78 Fender Jazzbass has the following problem. It is very heavy due to dense ash. Due to the high wood density the bass sounds with passive pickups very pointedly and overbrilliantly with relatively few basses and weak depths. Playing dry, without an amplifier, showed a somewhat more balanced sound. That meant for me, with the right pickup you can still get something out. I chose the new EMG JX for Jazzbass.

Mounting:
The instruction manual is in English and richly illustrated so that even a beginner should be good with the installation. Various installation options are shown. The best thing is: you do not need a soldering iron! All cables are equipped with robust plug connections.

Even coarse motorists will find it hard to harm here. Overall, installation is proceeding rapidly. Exemplary. To anticipate it, without battery runs here nix. The pickups are active and have a built-in preamp. So a 9V block must be from, the other is great in the electronics compartment place. The pickups I adjusted with 4 mm distance to the strings.

Sound:
The first good news, the Jazzbass, still beats Jazzbass. However, the sound now has much more depth and pressure, and the aggresive highs and highs are better integrated throughout the sound image. Altogether, the bass is now bursting with beautiful overtones, which he had already before, eat clear. By the way, here rushing or humming absolutely nothing.

In short, if you want to pound your bass sound and want a modern, clean and powerful sound, try the new EMG's. Compared to the normal EMG J-Set (as you know it), this set sounds slightly warmer and not quite so clean. How juicy.

Per:
Installation, sound, processing

Cons:
Unfortunately the threads of the Potis are a bit too long, especially for the Jazzbasskontrollplatte. That should EMG times think. Unterfüttern folds unfortunately also not there then then the battery in the electronics compartment is in the way.
Too bad, because of the optics.

Clear appreciation of the instrument

Huratio, 25.10.2011
About 2 years ago I got a Mexican Fender Jazzbass (Fretless), with whose own sound I was always very satisfied. As soon as I connected him to an amplifier, however, I was only echoed by a low-frequency mulching. Also the wiring seemed to me to be insufficient for this instrument.

However, this changed significantly after the installation of the EMG JX set to the positive. Due to the solderless wiring and the enclosed instructions, the installation is also an unbalanced task for non-professionals. However, one should keep in mind that the somewhat stubborn cable and the 9V block, which in my case new addition, took a relatively large amount of space. From my point of view, it is recommended to attach a battery compartment, but with a little fumbling without it. A bit negative are the overly potent potentiometers, the black poti cover now very far over the corpus float. In addition, the pickups seem to be slightly larger than the standard Mexican pickups. At least it was a little difficult to pull the pickguard over the pickups. However, this can also be due to the processing of the bass, since the holes for the pickup screws are also set quite imprecisely, so that the EMGs now have unequal gap dimensions in the milling.

These mostly optical questionings, however, the sound can more than compensate. The basses are incredibly rich. Perhaps a bit too much stressed for my taste. But that should not be a point of criticism. The mids are now really great articulated. They are very compact and therefore come very precisely and directly from the amplifier. The frequency spectrum also seems to have expanded in the heights. A very open sound echoes one there and also on a Fretlessbass. All in all, the pickups hold what they promise. They gave my bass a bit more freshness and modernity with a continued jazz bass feel
