    Almost certainly EMG; AFAIK that's what he always uses.

    There's an Ask Anthony Wellington section on this forum. He is very close to Vic. I know they were EMGs but not which ones. Anthony could probably clear it up in a second. Both stellar individuals. Both would probably trip over themselves to answer your question.

    EMG JJ set on the tenor bass.

    Oh so there's only one kind of EMG PJ set? Seriously, I don't know so I'm asking.

    There are two PJ sets. There are the original set and the newer X series. Back in 98 it would have been the original set in Vic's Monarch.

    Check out Bestbassgear.com. They have a Vic combo for sale there. It is a classic P, X Series J and Pope pre (which is what he uses on his YYD). From there all you need to sound just like Vic is his fingers! :)

    I was using the actual names EMG uses for the sets. I messed up on the jazz-style set that Vic has on his tenor bass on teh Bass Day 98 program though.. it's just "J set" not "JJ set"

    PJ Set on his Yin-Yang bass.

    J Set on the tenor bass.

    Ta da!

    Probably a Mike Pope / Fodera preamp and you're there for the Bass Day 98 electronics.. though of course.. those electronics were on a Fodera. ;)

    JoelFT is right, if you want Vic's more recent setup, bestbassgear is your place to go.
