I have avtive EMG CS's right now. I would love to be able capture the "P&J tones. Any ideas?
I know EMG makes p and j style configurations of Humbucker housings. The 35J and 35P4.
I was told that I would really need to go with passives to really capture the true P&J sounds.
Somebody in the Pickups forum will probably know. Moved.
emg do passive soapbars in the configs you want:
I've never heard an EMG P & J combo in the humbucker housing. I know that if you're looking for true P&J tones you're gonna have to go passive. It's just a totally different characteristic going from active to passive. Especially since EMGs tend to be a bit bright.
Not sure what your budget is like, but if you're after a cheaper option you could try the EMG Selects.
I put some EMG J type Selects in my SX Fretless, and I'm pretty happy with them. Low noise, good output and a nice warm tone - not too bright.
I bought mine here:
Hope it helps,
