Exact EMG pickup and Mike Pope preamp set as used by the incomparable Victor Wooten.

The PAX provides increased headroom giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMG's are renowned for. This new addition differs in that it uses Alnico V magnets instead of the ceramic magnets of the original PX. Because the PAX utilizes Alnico V magnets coupled with short, squat coils, the tone is endowed with openness and warmth for a more vintage tone, all with less noise and more signal. We have no doubt that the new PAX, with its natural presence, powerful lows, expansive midrange, and superior definition, will be as successful as its predecessor. Give it a try and experience why the "X" factor is exciting players all around the world.

The JV uses a mixture of old, new, and late model design ideas and was developed to deliver the classic tone and look of the traditional Jazz Bass*. It'still maintains the "faded" attack of the offset pole pieces in combination with our lowest noise preamp. The JV should appeal to the "retro" in you, while the coil and electronic design will convince you that this is a pickup to be seriously considered. The X series provide increased headroom giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMG's are renowned for. X's are best described as bridging the gap between passive and active tone.
