EMG 81/85 Pickup Set Chrome Covers
EMG pickups are the ultimate active pickups and EMG has been producing them for decades. Obviously they know what they are doing! Their active pickups are often found as stock pickups on high end and custom guitars. This is a matched set of EMG 81 and EMG 85 humbuckers with chrome covers, at a special price.
PLEASE NOTE! The 81C and 85C come with normal length pots. Les Pauls take a long shaft pot so please email if you are buying this set for a Les Paul.
Since strings vibrate less at the bridge position than at the neck, the 81C, which is slightly hotter than the 85C, should be used in the bridge position for a perect pair.
The EMG 85 humbucker pickup uses two Alnico magnet loaded coils with a wide aperture to maintain a beefy low-end and a fatter top end. It’s a perfect choice as a rhythm pickup. The EMG-81 is a high output active pickup designed especially for the lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you're playing power rock and roll, or overdriving your amp, there's a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. Take advantage of this deal if you want top quality, active pickups that will give you great sustain, low noise, and punch. EMG humbuckers are the ticket.
Included in this special package deal is a free Mogami Gold 18' cable, a $45.95 retail, high definition cable that will let you hear every detail from your new pickups.
