EMG HB size pickups are availlable for the 4 String bass guitar to provide you the player with different tonal options for your bass. All EMG pickups are humcancelling and the HB size pickups are a Split Coil construction design.

EMG's modern design features epoxy cast non-removable pickup covers, and their blade/rail design provides a generous sensing area and balanced response and output for a variety of bridge spacings. Almost all of EMG's offerings are Active pickups that utilize an internal preamp built directly into each pickup that provides excellent noise reduction and gain to get the output you require.

EMG HB size pickups are used by artists including Jack Blades, El, Garry Tallent, Vinnie Hornsby, Corey Barhorst, Brian 'Hardgroove', and many others.

Originally known as the EMG-SS, the HB was developed for Steinberger Sound for their infamous headless bass.

The added head room and dynamic response of the X Series preamp gives players an active pickup with the feel closer to a passive.
