Interesting active pickup
João Silva, 06.07.2017
A nice neck pickup. It has a really good clean sound and distorted it sounds well, comparable with a P.A.F pickup. A nice replacement, is more expensive than a EMG 60 or 85 but is worth.

Creamy or creamy ... how?
Oliver5567, 12.02.2015
... I can hardly describe the sound properties, because they are very dependent on personal feelings. Maybe it would be easier with red wine ... :-) Fact is: I am satisfied with the sound.

The package is ok and the accessories are neatly packed. The included instructions (which you can also see in advance on the homepage of EMG) is enlightening and the wiring for the beginner to deal with. And the various configuration options (with me a three-way Toggleswitch to be included) are illustrated and well described. At least I did not miss a German-speaking manual.

A small challenge, however, was that the brackets of the PU seem to be slightly wider than standard PU, so I had to make minor carving on the guitar body. For the amateur layman that would probably be a big minus, but that does not have to be necessary with every guitar and it did not put me in front of problems.

I find the combination of 57/66 much better than the 81/85 or 81/60 station wagon. Overall, more balanced properties and thus a bit more flexible from Rock to Metal. Real clean sound without distortion is also possible with this station wagon. The best thing, though, is that with a lot of "Zerre" and long sustain, the notes drop so beautifully into the overtone range (schwärm ...)
