Is this also the case with lane poor?
EDIT: According to both websites they SHOULD be the same size.
I feel like I should start from the beginning.
I’m looking to replace my Bart’s in a lovely buckeye topped Q5. Their output is low in comparison to my p bass (winding on the hot side) and I’m fighting to get it as bright as I want it without changing strings every other week. Maybe the Barts are defective.
I’ve been considering the EMG DC or J sets at 18V. What do you all think? I know modulus is known for being bright so maybe it’s my technique that yields a darker tone. I don’t know what I could change at this point because the hi end blows me away when I plug in my p bass.
my m4-sized lane poors are approximately 3 15/16" so if you have them, they should fit fine.
also, to confirm the specs on the size of emg 40 housings, i measured the top of the emg pickup (100mm) and the bottom (102mm). i don't have digital calipers on hand but that's basically what i measured. so the bottom of the emg's are slightly larger than the top. so keep that in mind if you're swapping out your m4-sized pickups with emg 40's.
EMG 40 DC/ CS pair with BTC preamp is very strong.without 18v
strong is not the same as headroom
I’m about to drop a 35P and a 35JX in my tbx. Any issues running an x series with a regular EMG?
They've never lacked in head room or tone great sounding pickups
isnt the 35jx a 4 string pick up
Usually yes. It depends on the string spacing too.
Yes my 5 string tbx has 35dc pickups in it currently. Not sure when they went to 40s on the fivers. Should just drop in yeah?
I don't mean to harp on the model ID, but I guess your 5 is not a TBX, but a TB. If the 35 worked before, it will be fine now. What position are you putting the 35JX in? I would recommend neck.
It’s a 91. What’s the diff between a TB and a TBX? Was gonna throw the j in the bridge and a p in the neck
the difference is in the bridge spacing. What is the width of the 24th fret?
Should be either 2.5 or 3. If you post a pic of the back of the neck joint I can be definitive.
looks like a TBX. I'm surprised the 35 is working. Have you had any volume problems with the outside strings?
PS, if it were me, I'd put the P in the bridge, and the J in the neck. You also need to make sure you have the right kind of 35P
It works fine...I mean you guys built it. Is there a reason y’all went with 35s on the early 5 strings?
well, at first it may have worked, but the 40 is better. For the P, you should make sure you have the
EMG-35P5-X model, or your middle string may not be as loud as the others.
