The 40CSX, with its modern appearance is actually a product of 30+ years of design experience. Reproducing an extended range cleanly - both higher AND lower - taxes the abilities of conventional pickups. In the 40CSX, we utilize a newly designed ultra low noise, low-impedance internal preamp, the “X” factor, which provides increased headroom giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMG’s are renowned for.Paired with parallel placed coils like the DCX, but loaded with ceramic steel, the result is that the 40CSX is much warmer as a result of the higher inductance of the steel, and thus has a smoother attack and a flatter high end. They are the most "Traditional" sounding of the group. This model uses an extended housing that is 4 inches (102mm), perfect for five string spacing’s. Give it a try and experience why the “X” factor is exciting players all around the world.
