Excellent pickup

Costa, 20.11.2017
Great replacement pickup. Used it on an old Ibanez Prestige 7string and it really made for a better sound. Really low noise too.

Pros:
Really good sound, note definition and dynamics. Top notch built quality as with everything EMG.

Cons:
Must be paired with X series pickups in order to have equal volume and gain across the entire pickup configuration.

Very nice and soft clean sound

Sef, 20.11.2013
I'll start with the pros:
- It has a very nice and soft clean sound. (which I doubt that is what a guitarist is looking for precisely in a pill like this).
- With a powerful and versatile amp you can get some compressed sound.
- The sound is more faithful, open and less processed.
- It is a "semi-skimmed" between active and passive.

Cons:
- It has very low volume output. (Something more than a passive pill)
- The distortion is supposed to be equal to that of an EMG 81, but it does not reach the sole of the shoe in the field of sugarcane distortion, it is sharper, less compressed and with an air to passive.
- It has so little exit that it costs to make it distort as God commands. (I have to put the Triple Rectifier in Modern / Chanel 3 / Gain 7.5 mode to sound like the original EMG 81 with the Gain to 6).
- The circuitry, potentiometers good, but wired PESIMO !!. It is prepared to not have to make welds, because in my case, and had to make several welds, the first one because it is not ready for any series portapila that comes with your guitar; and the second solder, because the cable does not have enough length from the pin to where my volume potentiometer is. (what they do to save 0.25 ...).

I have to add that I was sent 2 times because the first pill did not work well.

Summary: If you are looking for a clean and faithful pill to your instrument and without much coloring, it is ideal. If you are happy with the sound of the normal 81 I do not advise you. (Unless you add a compressor and a higher gain level)

It sounds great if you have a guitar with construction quality and very high woods, otherwise it will ... it will sound like a very definite EMG Hz or a series SA with something more of cane)
