Bushman, 17.02.2014
Great Pickups! I use them in my 5 String tuned in Drop-C with Stainless-Steel-Strings. The Neck-Pickup has a veeery deep Sound and gives you a fat low-End, the Bridge-Pickup is full of Mids and Highs with really much Attack.
I use these Pickups with a Pu-Balance-Poti and turn it a little bit to the Bridge Pick-Up. With a little Bit of Bass-Boost and High-Cut at the EQ of my Amp i get exactly the Sound i want: A loud Low-End with punchy Mids. (I play Metal, mostly). Compared to the Pick-Ups that i used before the EMGs (some China-Stuff i bought with a "Build-Your-Own-Bass"-Kit) the EMG-Tone is very clear and I hear myself much better on Stage than before.

Guter Humbucker, bei dem die Spulen auch als Singlecoils betrieben werden können!

Tone Hunter, 31.08.2012
Ich wollte unbedingt passiv bleiben und habe mich wegen der Anschlussmöglichkeiten für diesen EMG 40HZ entschieden.

Meine Schaltung habe ich wie folgt aufgebaut:
- Je Tonabnehmer kann ich die Spulen einzeln oder parallel schalten.
- Die Tonabnehmer zueinander kann ich einzeln, parallel und seriell schalten.

Wie man sieht, nutze ich die einzelnen Tonabnehmer also nicht wie "klassische" Humbucker. Ich habe mich aus klanglichen Gründen dagegen entschieden und wollte auch die Lautstärkeschwankung mit einer Schaltung Spule vorne - seriell - Spule hinten vermeiden (seriell ist deutlich lauter).
Dadurch, dass ich die Pickups zueinander seriell schalten kann, kann ich aber dennoch echte Humbucker Sounds erzeugen (Pickup 1 Spule vorne zu Pickup 2 Spule hinten und Pickup 1 Spule hinten zu Pickup 2 Spule vorne).

Nun zu den klanglichen Möglichkeiten (mit dieser Schaltung) und den Qualitäten dieses Pickups:

Die einzelnen Spulen klingen ganz ausgezeichnet. Die Pickups klingen, intern parallel geschaltet (nur ein Pickup in Betrieb), ungefähr wie die Mischung der beiden einzelnen Spulen, aber wie zu erwarten nicht mehr ganz so differenziert.

Die Sounds mit parallel zueinander geschalteten Tonabnehmern, wenn je Pickup nur eine Spule geschaltet wird, sind ebenfalls sehr gut. Damit bekomme ich u.a. auch diesen ganz charakteristischen Jazz-Bass Sound hin. Dafür müssen die Spulen natürlich auch noch an der korrekten Position sitzen (habe mich an einem 64-er Jazz orientiert und musste dafür fräsen).
Schaltet man bei einem der Pickups (oder bei beiden) beide Spulen parallel, klingt es ebenfalls wieder wie die Mischung, aber auch wieder ein klein wenig undifferenzierter.

In der seriellen Zusammenschaltung der beiden Pickups kann ich echte Humbucker Sounds abrufen und natürlich noch einige andere Variationen. Die seriellen Sounds sind generell lauter, haben einen "komprimierteren" Ton mit weniger Höhen und mehr Tiefmitten. Mit der Konsequenz, dass es deutlich undifferenzierter klingt.

Wenn man diese Pickups mit einzelnen Spulten betreibt, also wie Single-Coils, gibt es praktisch keine Probleme mit Einstreuungen. Auch ein deutlicher Hinweis auf Qualitätsarbeit.

Mein Fazit:
Im Laufe der Zeit habe ich nun schon eine ganze Menge Pickups verbaut (z.B. Fender, Nordstrand, Bartolini, aktive EMG). Diese passiven EMG 40 HZ sind tonal und qualitativ genau so gut wie die besten Exemplare die ich bisher in Händen hatte.

Dadurch, dass man die Spulen einzeln abgreifen kann, ist der EMG 40HZ äußerst flexibel. Die Stärken dieses Pickups liegen für mich persönlich ganz eindeutig im Pickup-übergreifenden parallelen Betrieb einzelner Spulen.
Hierbei ist zu beachten, dass das Signal ein gutes Stück leiser ist, als bei normalem (seriellen) Humbucker Betrieb. Die Einzelspulen sind leiser (ungefähr so laut wie echte Vintage SingleCoils) und um diesen tollen Ton nutzen zu können, muss das nachfolgende Verstärkungs-Equipment ggf. angepasst werden.

Ich möchte damit aber nicht gesagt haben, dass der EMG 40HZ als Humbucker betrieben nichts taugt! Dieser Pickup kann auch "klassisch" betrieben mit der Konkurenz mithalten und die Unterschiede sind eher eine persönliche Geschmacks-, als eine Qualitätsfrage.

Fazit: Diese EMGs sind wirklich gut, bei Bedarf extrem flexibel und für den Preis ein echtes Schnäppchen.

Und zum Abschluss noch der gut gemeinte Hinweis: Wenn der Bass nichts taugt, werden es die Pickups auch nicht richten.
