    Are Emg P's really growly? They seem to be on the gene simmons signature punisher bass, and im just wondering if its the bass itself or the pickup.

    FWIW:

    From reading my old review, I didn't find the active EMG P to be a stand out in the growl category. There are a myriad of variables aside from the pup that contribute to growl so it's quite possible he uses a standard brand EMG. I don't think I've ever heard mention of EMG doing any custom wiring. There's bound to be tons of reviews on them. So I'd read them and if you don't see growl mentioned often, I'd say it's other variables.
