Scale The Summit is one band you should give a listen to! Since their debut in 2004, they’ve been a force to be reckoned with on the progressive metal front. EMG caught up with the bassist, Mark Mitchell, to put together an awesome demo through a set of EMG 45JX-CS and EMG 45JX pickups! Watch as Mark performs the band’s song “Narrow Salient” in the video above! Read below for more info on the pickups he’s using. If you are interested in ordering these pickups, email sales@themusiczoo.com or call 516-626-9292!

EMG 45JX-CS

45x_1

The 45JX-CS has increased headroom that gives the voicing a more open tone while still retaining the clarity and response that EMG’s are renowned for. Featuring ceramic steel magnets and powered by a newly designed preamp, the 45JX-CS pickup has characteristic jazz bass tone, but due to the custom radiused ceramic steel bar magnet, and the very low ratio of resistance to inductance, the tone is much warmer as a result of the higher inductance of the steel, and thus has a smoother attack and a flatter high end. This is all housed within a 45 extended series cover cap that is 4.5 inches (115mm) and is intended for 6-string models that have a maximum string spacing of 3.75 inches.

So whether you play fretted or fretless bass, are playing live or in the studio, with the 45JX-CS backing you up, you’ll get an incredible full sound to get the job done. Give it a try and experience why the “X” factor is exciting players all around the world.
