The EMG Geezer Butler Pickup Set (PJ) is one of EMGs premier passive pickup sets that they have created while working with a specific artist.
While known for their active designs, EMG continues to impress by sitting down at the bench and doing the hard work of recreating a tone that a prolific and legendary bass player has had.
Geezer wanted a traditional sound much like the early Sabbath tone. The EMG Geezer Pickups are a 1970s type tone that have some grind but with snap and punch.
While the P is by nature humcancelling, EMG and Geezer choose to build a J pickup that is also humcancelling, which adds more output and strength then found in a typical vintage J pickup. Both the P and J pickup use Alnico 5 magnets.
What they achieved is an excellent tone that is focused and deep and recognizable as that found on the Sabbath’s classics. Geezer had traditionally had reservations to lend his name to a set of pickups, but these, the EMG Geezer Butler pickups have met his high sonic standards.
