  1. :bassist:does anyone have expierence using this pick up on their bass? i and looking to put it on a 5 string bass i am making currently and i would love someones opinion on this pick up
     
  2. I was impressed with the tone, I played a Schecter with EMG HZ and a preamp at GC, I think they sounded great. Might be worth a trip to Guitar Center.

    It has a pretty scooped tone. I liked the 40DC and 40P5 much better.

    Had a Dean Rhapsody 12 with EMG HZs. Swapped out the neck pickup for a Bartolini CX and thought it was a considerable improvement in tone. The HZs sounded kind of "generic" to me....

    What sort of bass are you putting these in? What kind of sound do you want?

    The 2 basses that I gig with, both have 40DC's in them..... Nice and bright, nice and low....

    I have two EMG 40P5's in my Schecter Elite-5 which I much prefer over the HZ's. The bass came with the HZ's originally.

    Also, I have a Aguilar OBP-2 TK preamp in it as well, which replaced the original EMG BTS factory installed preamp.

    Have you considered EMG CS p/u's?
