EMG JH "HET" Set LS C

James Hetfield Pickup Set for Electric Guitar

This set captures the clarity and punch of a passive pickup while maintaining the well-known "active" tone. They were designed according to the pickups James Hetfield has been using for 30 years. More power and a fuller low-end at the neck position, tight attack with less inductance for a cleaner bass at the bridge.

Rien à dire
Dreadpoulp, 08.02.2018
Monter sur une epiphone les paul 100 ebony, certain diront que c'est absurde de monter des EMG sur une guitare de si basse qualité mais je vous garantis que la différence est là,
Le son claire est très agréable et très brillant mais le point fort des ces EMG HET SET réside dans le son saturé avec un ampli capable de suivre un minimum c'est que du bonheur, un son puissant sans pour autant être brouillon, comparer aux micro d'origine de mon epiphone qui avait un son plat et sans personnalité à peine capable de tenir la route avec un peu de gain et bien la c'est carrément autre chose.

A rajouté au passage. J'avais des problèmes de parasite avec les ancien micro sûrement dû à un problème de masse, et bien là après montage et testé avec une bonne distorsion rien à signaler excepté les grésillement habituel de la distorsion.

En bref deux pépite signer EMG de quoi redonner un bon coup de boost à une gratte en apparence médiocre.

Petit plus pour le câblage sans soudure, très simple d'installation pour qui sais lire une notice.

Brillanz und Druck zu gleich
Dennizzle, 10.12.2018
Verbauort ist eine PRS Tremonti SE von 2014. Die SE-Humbucker hatten geringeren Output als die der amerikanischen Tremonti. Nach paar Jahren wollte ich nachrüsten und alles aus dieser schönen Gitarre rausholen. Das hat mit den HET Set wunderbar geklappt.

Optik und Verarbeitung: Schön und schlicht. Die Chrom-Oberfläche passt zur restlichen Hardware und ist ein schöner Kontrast zum schwarzen Lack.

Verbau: Schnell, einfach, sauber, besonders wenn man sich den EMG Toggle Switch dazu kauft. Dann muss gar nichts mehr gelötet werden.

Und das Wichtigste: der Sound!
Die Gitarre wird i.d.R. in Drop C oder C Standard mit Daddario 11/56er Saiten gespielt. Trotz der tieferen Stimmung ist der Sound auch bei starker Verzerrung sehr transparent. Die Tonabnehmer liefern ordentlichen Druck. Die Dynamik ist immer noch vorhanden, trotz aktiver Bauweise. Im Clean Modus ist der Sound meiner Meinung nach etwas zu kräftig. Dort merkt man aber eher das man mit aktiven Tonabnehmern zu tun hat. Trotzdem sehr transparenter und voller klang.

Da die Gitarre im Deathmetal ihren Einsatz findet gibt es 5 Sterne für den Sound. Das HET Set wurde genau dafür eingebaut und nicht um clean jazz zu spielen. Diese Aufgabe erfüllt es wunderbar.

Sonidazo!!!
zzazze, 07.04.2020
He cambiado las pastillas de mi Les Paul Standard 2015 por las Het Set Chrome. Ha sido muy fácil hacerlo ya que no es necesario soldar nada. El resultado es muy bueno, con un sonido algo menos agresivo que las clásicas EMG 81 60, que conozco muy bien. Destacaría el sonido limpio de la pastilla del mástil, realmente limpio y que recuerda un poco al sonido de una "acústica". Con distorsión tiene un sonido amplio y lleno con buenos graves, ideal para voces y armonías. La pastilla del puente suena más aguda y cañera, mejor para solos.

En general estoy muy contento con la compra. Sólo pondría una pega en cuanto al acabado chrome de las pastillas, que es realmente frágil y que se ha rallado incluso al limpiarlas con un paño. Supongo que las black o las chrome brushed o gold brushed no tendrán ese problema.
