EMG Never Fails!

I was already "in the know" of EMG's clarity and power, and that's why I put'em in my Warmoth Gecko. I have'em wired to a BQC preamp with 18v power. The solderless connections were a nice breeze to hook up. This bass pounds like a heavyweight MMA fighter. Unfortunately, I didn't get'em from Sweetwater, but this was before I knew about'em. I'll be buying from here from now on!

New pickups

I had a set of EMG pickups installed on my Brian Moore bass and the difference was unbelievable! The bass had twice the volume and tons of tone. I would highly recommend these pickups to anyone wanting to replace soapbar pickups on their bass.
