The 40HZ for 5-string bass features a dual-coil design for low noise and plenty of output. Using EMG's "CS" design (Ceramic and Steel), this pickup has the punch and fullness of older passive designs along with added brightness for a better defined tone. EMG-HZ bass models feature Solid "Bar" Poles that cover the entire width of the strings so any string layout can be used. Using an Extended Series housing, it is a direct replacement with EMG's entire "Active" pickup line. All HZ Pickups have EMG's exclusive 5-wire Quik-Connect output allowing any number of wiring combinations, and are fully shielded for a minimum of noise. String grounding is recommended to further decrease noise.
Package Includes: Mounting screws and springs.

Comments about EMG 40HZ Passive 5 String Bass Pickup:

These came stock in my ESP F-205. I though I would switch them out soon after I bought it but they are still in it! The body of the bass is made of mahogany so I think these pickup blend very well. I also have an EMG 3 band active EQ in the bass so together they let me get whatever sound I want! If I ever do replace these I have another bass I'll put these in because they sound too good to go to waste!
