Im making a bass, and im coming to the part where i need to decide on passive bass pups. I do not have alot of money to spend though, and these are the best passive 5 string pickups avalible in my area They are the EMG HZ, and the EMG selects. Now i have narrowed it down to the EMG Select Jazz bass pickups, and the EMG HZ. Both are in the latest stew mac catalogue aswell. Heres what the magazine says about each pickup: Pickups set for Jazz Bass Great punchy tone with excellent drive. The hum cancelling set of two single blade pickups is ideas for 4 or 5 string basses. 7.1K ohms About $75 AUS EMG HZ Dual Coil 'CS' design with a solid cover gives low noise and full range ith added brightness. 5 wire connector, 250K pots reccomended. 40HZ is 9.6K omhs. About $120 Aus. I think the HZ will sound better, but the jazz's cost less, and give a wide tonal range. Opinions guys?
