To recapture Geezers early Black Sabbath tone, it meant a new EMG vintage style for passive P & PJ design with a few modern touches. The all solderless for P set uses Alnico V pole pieces and custom wound coils for just the right amount of punch and grit. And for the J (PJ set) also uses Alnico 5 poles and features two custom wound split-coils. This eliminates the noise and hum usually associated with early 70s bass pickups and allows for more power and volume than any other standard single coil J - creating a remarkable balance between the P and the J.
The result is an unmistakable early Geezer Butler bass tone with deep, tight low end that you hear on tunes like Iron Man, War Pigs, and Paranoid, just like 1970s. I never felt comfortable giving my name to any other pickups, but this time these have blown me away. So please do not be concerned if you see that.
