The J5 Set is the original EMG J Set for 5 string bass.

This set became an instant hit with its sweeping harmonic overtones, punch and quiet operation. This pickup set has classic jazz bass characteristics with a broader tonal frequency range that adds dimensions and clarity to your bass playing. EMG's design has a very low ratio of resistance to inductance, which increases the low end response, while the radiused ceramic bar magnet ensures the tone keeps a tight mid-range punch with dynamic high end response. Whether you play fretted or fretless, live or in the studio, you'll get an incredibly full sound with these bass pickups.

EMG made a growly set of pickups here EMG J5 Set – Five String Jazz
Bass Pickup. Pair it with the EMG BTC 2 band preamp adds a lot of
control on the tone. Add stainless steel strings and these sound like
a chainsaw even completely attenuating all the treble – cut through
the mix like buttered alligators. Very pleased with this set up.
Thanks BBG. And of course quick delivery times as usual.
