Sound Quality

[Perceived output level] Damn hot [Tone] Lots of mids but that can be smoothed out with your amps EQ. Really good for metal, and anything with solos because it makes playing almost effortless. People try to say that the EMG-81 is hot, this thing destroys it. [Sonic evaluation] I have used this pickup with many different combinations of amps and cabs some with kickass sounds and some that just plain out suck. One thing with this pickup, try it out before you buy it because with some amps it can sound great others blow. Anything that is quality will probably work like a good tube amp, and something that does not already have tons of gain on it, it will merely turn this to complete mush which is not usable at all. so you must try this out with your equiptment first to see if it will work. [For which styles and positions is this pickup (un)suitable] You can not play clean with it ever, it distorts the clean channel!!!


General Comments

[Comments] think this is a great pickup if used in the right combination with equiptment but is the worst thing if used incorrectly. E-mail with any questions or comments that you may have.
