Active Bass Pickups

Reproducing an extended range cleanly - both higher AND lower - taxes the abilities of conventional pickups. Slap-style playing creates transients of incredible magnitude and unusual harmonic patterns. Digital recording technology now regularly provides full, deep bass on a silent background that was impossible using analog LP technology. And the incredible variety of bass configurations that make new playing styles possible require advanced magnet structures and superwide configurations for full coverage of 5- and 6- string bass string spreads. EMG's family of bass pickups addresses all these issues. Togar Guitars dedication to using the finest components, includes using EMG electronics. For more specific details, click on the pickup of your choice.



The 35DC (Dual Coil) employs parallel placed coils (ceramic loaded) to produce a deep low end, and yet maintain clarity. All of the DC Models are beefy, brilliant, and have more than enough output. The DC also uses the ultra low-noise preamp designed for the EMG- JV model.


The 35CS (Ceramic & Steel) model uses parallel placed coils like the DC but are loaded with steel. The CS's are much warmer as a result of higher inductance, have a smoother attack and a flatter high end. They are the most "Traditional" sounding of the group.



Inside the EMG-35TW pickup are both single and dual-coil pickups, each with its own output. The single-coil mode is a new version of our EMG-J pickup built in the CS (ceramic and steel). The dual-coil mode is our popular CS dual-coil consisting of two coils opposite one another creating a pickup similar to model 35CS. A push/pull volume (or tone) pot allows you to change from the clarity of a single-coil to the fatness of a dual-coil.



The EMG-EXB is an unconventional equalization control for bass that increases the low and high frequency regions while reducing the midrange simultaneously to provide the gain and punch that bass players want. Slap players will especially appreciate its superior clarity and percussive quality.
