The PAX pickup is similar to our EMG PA bass pickup, but with the addition of the X Series preamp.

The X preamp offers greater dynamic control and touch sensitivity, bridging the gap between passive and active tone and feel. Because the PAX utilizes Alnico V magnets coupled with short, squat coils, the tone is open and rich, with a vintage character. For those who seek an active P bass pickup with a more vintage tone and feel, the PAX is an excellent choice.

Complete with EMG's solderless wiring control kit, this pickup is a breeze to install on your own.

Package Includes

  • EMG's Exclusive Quik-Connect™ Cable
  • Prewired Solid Shaft Volume/Active Tone Control Set
  • Output Jack
  • Battery Clip Set
  • Adjustment Screws

Please Note:EMG supplies chrome screws with their pickups. If you require black or gold screws, we carry them on our pickup screws page.

Great !

Incredible pickup ! Tone is very close to a vintage Fender without all the downsides you get from a passive pickup, and with a higher output too. No noise at all. I had a PX at first but it was too sterile on my P-bass (naturally bright because of the maple fretboard), then I tried a EMG P from my Spector (which was better and more balanced), until I found the perfect match with the PAX.
