EMG PAX 4-String Offset Dual Coil Pickup



Based off the classic P design, the PAX replaces the ceramic magnets with Alnico V magnets and uses short, squat coils to a vintage tone that’ll leave you basking in its warmth. With its thunderous lows, far-reaching mid-range, and pure spectrum, the PAX lives up to the well-earned reputation of its predecessor. And as part of the X-Series it possesses that fat natural tone, while remaining responsive and clear.

Used by professional musicians including Victor Wooten, five-time Grammy Award winner and thrice named “Bass Player of the Year” by Bass Player Magazine.

It is available in Black, White, or Ivory cover caps.Call Us for Availability of Colors Other than Black
