Excellent pickup
Costa, 20.11.2017
Great replacement pickup. Used it on an old Ibanez Prestige 7string and it really made for a better sound. Really low noise too.

Pros:
Really good sound, note definition and dynamics. Top notch built quality as with everything EMG.

Cons:
Must be paired with X series pickups in order to have equal volume and gain across the entire pickup configuration.

Sonido limpio muy bonito y suave
Sef, 20.11.2013
Voy a empezar por los pros:
- Tiene un sonido limpio muy bonito y suave. ( cosa que dudo que sea lo que un guitarrista busca precisamente en una pastilla como esta ).
- Con un ampli potente y versátil se le puede sacar algo de sonido comprimido.
- El sonido es mas fiel, abierto y menos procesado.
- Es una "semidesnatada" de entre activa y pasiva.

Contras:
- Tiene muy baja salida de volumen. ( Algo mas que una pastilla pasiva )
- La distorsión, supuestamente es igual a la de una EMG 81, pero no llega a la suela del zapato en el terreno de la distorsión cañera, es mas nítida, menos comprimida y con un aire a pasivo.
- Tiene tan poca salida que cuesta hacerla distorsionar como dios manda. ( tengo que poner el Triple Rectifier en modo Modern/Chanel 3/Gain 7.5 para que suene como la EMG 81 original con el Gain al 6).
- La circuitería, Potenciometros buenos, pero cableado PESIMO!!. Esta preparada para no tener que hacer soldaduras, pues en mi caso, e tenido que hacer varias soldaduras, la primera por que no esta preparada para cualquier portapila de serie que venga con tu guitarra; y la segunda soldadura, por que el cable no tiene la suficiente largura desde la clavija hasta donde esta mi potenciometro de volumen. ( lo que hacen por ahorrar 0,25...).

Tengo que añadir que me la enviaron 2 veces por que la primera pastilla no funcionaba bien.

Resumen: Si buscas una pastilla limpia y fiel a tu instrumento y sin colorear mucho, es la ideal. Si eres feliz con el sonido de la 81 normal no te la aconsejo. ( A no ser que añadas un compresor y un nivel de ganancia mas alto )

Suena estupendamente si tienes una guitarra con calidad de construcción y maderas muy altas, como no sea así,... te sonara a una EMG Hz muy definida o una serie SA con algo mas de caña )

EMG707TW gegen EMG81-7X getauscht
AeonNihilation, 02.08.2012
Hab in der Bridgeposition meiner Schecter Hellraiser C-7FR diesen 81-7X verbaut. Wie schon der andere "bewerter" schrieb, hat er etwas weniger Bass als der 707TW dafür aber wirklich um einiges mehr Klarheit, Transparenz und eine gute Brise Höhen. Die X-Serie komprimiert nicht mehr so stark wie man es von EMGs gewohnt ist und klingen ein wenig nach Dimarzios mit der Power eines Aktiven. Die X-Serie ist auch sehr für Cleans zu empfehlen, wirklich gute Dynamik, von Flüsterleise bis hin zu so laut das die Röhre schon bissl zerrt. In der Bridgeposition klingt der 81-7x im Clean natürlich etwas hell und knackig.

Ich kann ihn auf jedenfall jedem empfehlen der Metal im Bandgefüge spielt, da er im vergleich zu den 707 noch besser die (für die Metalgitarre) wichtigen Frequenzen ausspuckt. Eben etwas weniger Bass (Platz für den Bassisten!!) dafür aber deutlichere Mitten und wunderbar offene Höhen. Unglaublich wie ein PU einer Gitarre soviel mehr Transparenz in die Jamsessions und Proben bringen kann.

Bin vollkommen zufrieden, auch wenn der Einbau etwas komplizierter war, da ich die 2 707tw gegen einen 707TW-X und eben gegen diesen 81-7x getauscht hab und Schecter nicht die die Version mit den Steckverbindungen sondern nur die Lötvariante von EMG eingebaut hat (auch ohne die "control cavity", also diese Hauptplatine wo alles angeschlossen wird). Aber die EMG PUs kommen ja immer mit Volume- und Tone-Poti sowie Buchse und Kabeln daher, habe also alles komplett getauscht, bis aufs Toggleswitch.
Wer die 707tw gegen die 707TWX tauschen will, wird überhaupt keine Probleme haben; der müsste nur den PU rausschrauben Kabel vom PU ziehen und beim TW-X wieder anstecken, aber in meinem Fall wars halt net so leicht ^^.

Blablabla, GEILER PICKUP, BESTES AUSM HAUSE EMG. Mehr braucht man dazu nicht sagen, antesten!

MFG
