One of EMGs original designs and our most popular bass pickup model since its introduction in 1979, the P covers a wide sonic palette of classic and modern bass sounds. Because the P utilizes ceramic magnets coupled with short, squat coils, the tone is endowed with high-end articulation, warmth, and incredible low end punch, all with less noise and more signal. Countless pros use it because they find it has a natural presence, powerful lows, punchy midrange, and superior definition. Great for all styles of music. This model is also available with ceramic steel magnets for a smoother high end EQ response.
