    I have a Spector Legend5 with the EMG HZ jazz neck and soapbar bridge pickups. According to Spector, the preamp is a EMG B30. I love the play ability of this bass but not a fan of the tone. I think just replacing the HZ pickups with EMG actives would make a huge difference and sound closer to my Euro 5 strings. The current configuration is vol/vol/mid/stacked bass and treble

    Which model EMG active pickups would be a good replacement?
     
  2. I played EMG active PJ for years. I arrived at the conclusion the EMGs are something of a one trick pony, with regards to tonal options. If you like the sound of them, and don't expect anything more, they're OK. I've since moved on to Wilde Bill Lawrence P46 which offer lots of tone options.
