Interesting part

blauespferd, 23.10.2009
So to the sound one can say that it is true what one reads. Compared to the 81er, it is somewhat more open, and has a less compressed effect. In the rhythm area, however, this has less effect. Since it does the normal as well, if not better. It is interesting however in the Chrunch and Clean, as well as with Solis here the 81x is much more dynamic and sensitive. All this with an unchanged high output. Also the sound control is active and works much more precisely - whoever needs it will be very happy about it.

The thing with the "solderless" installation is also good, but you should be aware that this is only true if you have all the components from the current system of EMG ... otherwise you have different systems always by soldering to the EMG system. Once you have done it, the whole guitar is much more easy to maintain and individual (perhaps defective) signal paths can be tested and replaced.

Processing is as expected top, but with me a cable MECHHLT, and neither the guys from Thomann nor those of EMG wanted to help me so really help ... (therefore only three points) Well an Audiokabel of an old CDROM drive now has the Service ... So here also the possibility to save money, if something is broken ... With a little skill one gets over this way a cheap spare part source.

Conclusion: Horny part for friends and sound tinkers ... For all the only Powerchordbraten need the predecessor!

The active passive

Christian577, 28.10.2009
I had feared that the X series might sound too passive ... but was positively surprised.

The sound resembles strongly the 81 without X, but a bit "fleshy" and "rounder" ... so somehow "more passive". For this, the latch provides less (but still ample) output. In the bridge position, I feel the clean sound as cutting because the strings are emphasized clearly.

The part is distorted however exactly my thing. Much snap in attack and sustain without end. As with the 81 you can also squeak here without much effort. I tested the PU in the bridge position of a linden maple top fat strat with maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. Achso ... guitars with active ones can be directly connected without a DI to a mixing console for example to play software amps. I could not hear any losses in the heights ... but the difference to a passive PU is clearly audible.
