Easy to install, great sounding

ISBM, 10.10.2017
Fitted to a cheap LP copy to make it sound a bit more pleasant and bring the guitar back into use. I opted for this and the H4 due to the solderless fitting. It gave it the edge over the competitors for me who at the time was unfamiliar with swapping pickups. It was extremely easy to install and includes 2 pots and all the cables needed making it a good little package!

The sound is good. On a clean channel the tone is soft and warm and when driven it can be used for a decent lead sound. Is it a copy of the active equivalent like the EMG 85? No. It has aspects of that well known active sound but is certainly not quite as hot. I have no regrets for buying it though would probably not go for it again. Very decent and well made, but there's a large market out there and I wouldn't say these are the best. One thing EMG do have in their favour is the look - the matt black box shape that I have seen many complain about. Personally I'm a fan of the design.

Not bad, but still not VERY good

lanou, 16.12.2017
It's fine, but I mounted it in bridge position and it sounds better than H4. Clean is OK, distorted fine as well, but it should have more power and depth than it has. Would exchange it for active EMG's. Just standard pick-ups.
