Excellent pair of pickups for metal players
Evane89, 14.01.2020
I have been using the standard EMG 81/85 set for years in all of the guitars that I own or have owned and I was very happy with them for the longest time. After having purchased a Harley Benton guitar (which plays and feels awesome) I decided to upgrade the rather cheap pickups and switch them out with this EMG Het Set. A huge difference, ofcourse. But having played the standard set for years I definitely feel these sound a lot more organic and ballsy.

I love the looks of these pickups aswell, a sort of brushed aluminum look that fits heavy guitars.

Although they are a bit more expensive than the regular 81/85 set, I definitely recommend trying these out!

Not Just for Metal
Tallica84, 25.03.2019
Bought these to replace the EMG 81/60 in my ESP FX Standard.

The finish is great, bought these over a year ago and still look like new. As these have quick connect wires they are easy to install.

Sound is close to 81/60 but they do seem to be more open sounding. I find them to be more versatile, rolling the volume back can bring you closer to a classic rock sound compared to the 81/60.

Crisp and crystal clear sound
Thaiatron, 01.02.2018
The EMG "Het-set", sound of a passive pickup, the power of an active pickup, best of both worlds.
The pickups sounds good, looks good and with the EMG "plug and play" electronics it is easy to switch and mix different EMG pickups.

The sound is crisp, clear and versatile.
They work with classic rock, to metal, to heavier metal.
the clean sound brings a tingle to ones spine, while the distorted sound sounds like a roaring beast that blows away naysayers.
While the "Black brushed chrome" looks black on the pictures, it is more metallic and futuristic looking in real life.

If you want a set of EMG pickups but dont want the classic 60/81 setup, I recommend these or the 66/57 setup, wich has the same characteristics as these pickups and for around the same price.
