EMG P pickupWhile disciples of the 6-string faction are more conservative and often more reserved regarding active pickups, bassists were always more open and eager to experiment. As such the EMG bass pickups have enjoyed great popularity for many years.

The two-part Precision pickup has always been a guarantee for assertive rock sounds and punchy basses. The EMG version of this pickup is characterised by an audible amplification of the mid-range, which fits very well with more modern sound ideas and helps any bassist to be more present within a band. The popular growling Precision Touch remains, however, fully intact!

EMG P's I was blown away

dnp41, 18.08.2017
So these are not a high profile pickup set (by that I mean that people are not discussing these at the forums), they are cheap and they come with all things needed (besides the battery).

My parts bass was seriously lacking mojo and tone, so I thought what the hell, let's see what some active pickups can do to the bass and I am more than impressed. Blown away actually. The sound is so full, so clear, so nice. These pickups don't make a small difference like you can expect when you change from SD SPB-1's to GZR pickups. These pickups make a huge difference.

the installation is super easy, granted that you have some room for a battery in the control cavity. I did'nt so I had to make room (yes I hacked out a battery sized hole in my control cavity). After that it took me less than 10 minutes to wire the bass.

I really like these and think they'd be great for recording.

Increases the dynamics of a class

Juan RamonG, 24.03.2013
If you are looking for a remarkable change in the sound of a classic electric bass, such as the Fender Precision, or any of the brands that imitate this model, it is a good choice, without the need to change the instrument.
The most notable difference is that as it is an active electronic circuit, it increases the dynamics of the sound quite a lot, although depending on what type of music the appropriate pads may or may not be suitable, since this type of pickups is suitable for hard rock , But it must be taken into account that while we increase the density and power, some cleanness and clarity is lost in another type of music.
