  • EMG 24v Mod..............Is it dangerous?

    Hi all

    Didn't want to chisel out my guitars insides to do the 18v mod on my EMG's so found a little device that allows me to push 24v through the standard single socket!!

    Sounds pretty good now to be honest....lots of extra tone & makes my EMG's sound more passive but still meaty

    Just wondered if 24v long term would damage the pups in any way??

    Thanks

    No, the voltage all goes through the pramp, which was designed for 18V, but can take more.

        Well if you google for the 18v mod it is well accepted as improving your tone

          I had a 18V mod, I went back to 9v tho due to my amp has a asston of output

          I've never herd of a 24V mod tho, sounds kinda pointless.

            But if you google for improving your tone you don't find much about adding more batteries to your guitar

              Thats because this thread is only referring to active EMG's.......which need batteries......
              And commonly people use 2 batteries to improve their tone....

              I was only trying to find out if i was gonna ruin my guitar, or wether i would be safe to experiment for a while!!

                    Where the hell does the 24 volt mod come from....? Isn't this the 27 volt mod? unless my math is horribly wrong 9+9+9=27. To half the people who posted....Pull head from ass than post about what the "24 volt mod" will sound like and how it will work. Jesus....


                    Just for the record: Even EMG says that 27v doesn't makes much of a difference compared to 18v - at least on guitars.

                      How on earth does this work and how can you get it to go in your guitar?

                      My guitar has a little battery door that swings open for easy battery changes
                      but if I could get more headroom for clean tones it would be worth a try.
