The EMG 40PX-5 is our PX bass pickup in an Extended range housing with the treble magnet closer to the neck (like a Spector or Yamaha bass).
The X Series preamp offers increased touch sensitivity and dynamic range, helping to bridge the gap between passive and active pickups. The EMG 40PX-5 covers a wide sonic palette of classic and modern bass sounds. Because this pickup utilizes ceramic magnets coupled with short, squat coils, the tone has brilliant high-end articulation, warmth, and incredible low end punch. Countless pros use this bass pickup because of its natural presence, superior dynamics, and low noise.
For players who want a "Fender" P alignment - with the treble side closer to the bridge - we offer this pickup in "reverse".
Utilizing EMG's solderless wiring, this pickup is easy to install at home.
It is intended for 5-string basses that have a standard string spacing (3.125" max).
