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.

Bluffing.

I already had in my possession a Spector Euro 4LX equipped with standard EMG and I wanted to test this new X series for a custom project. The rendering is simply huge. On the classic series I sometimes noted a compression a little too present and stifling that has been fully corrected on the X series. These microphones cover all frequency ranges, it plugs and it sounds direct in all circumstances without EQ. EMG has really hit hard and innovated on this one. I note maybe a very (very) slight loss of gain by standards, but on the other hand the balance is much more respected and the sound (still) better defined. On my Spector I use the preamp in good order to equalize the standards, with this series X I installed a bypass because I use the raw sound of JX 95% of the time. It's too pleasant. For the price difference between J and JX, it is justified.
