Steinberger Spirit GT Deluxe

Eddy Van Halon, 21.02.2015
I fitted this EMG HZ S3 to my Steinberger Spirit GT pro and I must say this has really transformed this guitar as the original pickups where the EMG select. I can honestly say that the EMG range of pickups are of superb quality, Keep up the good work.

Let it "glue" ...

Armand, 05.11.2011
The fact that I ever put EMG pickups on my guitars, I could not have imagined so far in the wildest dreams! Batteries in an electric guitar - thank you NO !!!! Then I came across the HZ H4 (EMG 81) and the HZ S3 - passive - how cool is that ....? And the price of this passive variant is also sensational. After reading the many positive statements about the EMG HZ H4, I decided to order a set consisting of two HZ S3 (Neck & Middle) and a HZ H4 (Bridge) for my WARMOTH Strat and the DiMarzio's ( Chopper and super distortion) to the holidays. To my great surprise, they will now also remain there, ie I will sell them .... :-)

The EMG set sounds so cool and punchy and very clear that I was very addicted to this sound and the other PU's like DM and SD only felt "muddy"! This incredibly fast response and clear detailed drawing in the sound looks the same! I really enjoyed the SOLDANO ROS-50 2x12 "Combo with EMINENCE V12 Speakern ... The riffs made me really jumped, can recommend this combination only very warmly, however I have for the conventional soldering method without the original Potis with The HZ H4 I have connected by serial and parallel switch and so I have a very fat humbuckersound and a likewise noislessen, but very much The S3 HZ, which is actually used here, is the best solution for a wide range of applications, including the " Sound like single coils should sound flat - bell-like and still punchy - splitting is not necessary - they have enough bite and the whole combination is completely quiet.
Just great - I can only recommend. Will all my battles now so retrofit!
-------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------
Have meanwhile made a lot of studio recordings with this set and can only swarm! The EMG81 set, which I ordered now, I have returned again, because you can unfortunately not split the EMG81 (only three pins), let alone parallel can switch. This goes however with the HZ H4 and the S3. What is also sensational: The HZ pickups can be replaced by the EMG 5-pin plug at the pickup, WITHOUT the whole wiring again - simply superl! So you can synonymous eg times the HZ H4A or an S4 try .... My second (green) WARMOTH Strat I have already upgraded to an HZ H4A (EMG85) / S3 set (HSH), a great alternative - sounds more smooth And warm and less centered than the H4 (EMG81) .... :-)
