EMG JH "HET" Set C

James Hetfield signature pickup set for electric guitar

This set captures the clarity and the punch of a passive pickup, yet retains the legendary, active tone that has shaped a generation. Designed after the pickups that James has used for 30 years, the end result was however a very different animal; expect a more power and fuller bass at the neck, and a tighter attack with less inductance for a clearer bass on the bridge.

Really good pickups
Vincent Chambers, 25.09.2018
I bought these to put in my custom modded Epiphone Les Paul.
They had a quick and easy solderless installation (apart from one small part) And they sound absolutely amazing! The clean tones are warm and clear and the driven sounds are as amazing as you would expect from a James Hetfield signature set! Cannot recommend these enough!

Einfach klasse
smith007, 10.07.2019
Ich habe mir die James Hetfield EMG's in meine Ibanez RGIR30 einbauen lassen. Zuvor waren das EMG 81/60 Set eingebaut. Weil ich an der Gitarre sowieso noch ein paar Feinheiten einstellen bzw. ändern lassen wollte, habe ich die PU'S auch gleich beim Gitarrenbauer einbauen lassen. Zum Einbau an sich kann ich also nicht viel sagen. Laut Gitarrenbauer war das aber alles ziemlich easy.

Die Optik ist für mich einfach klasse. Der Korpus meiner Gitarre ist schwarz, da kommen die EMG's in Chrome einfach super rüber und stechen auch richtig raus. Sieht also viel besser aus als vorher mit den schwarzen Pickups.

Zum Sound brauche ich glaube ich nicht allzu viel sagen. Klingt einfach richtig geil. Einfach Metallica eben :-) Wobei auch normale Rocksounds richtig gut klingen. Im Vergleich zu den EMG 81/60 klingen die James Hetfield Pickups auf jeden Fall besser. Wobei das natürlich auch immer Geschmacksache ist.
