The EMG Retro Active Hot 70 set utilizes ceramic magnets in the bridge and alnico 5 in the neck producing high output Van Halen and ZZ top like tone of the late 70’s. This traditional open coil design set has a vintage look that players love. Each pickup is outfitted with a uniquely voiced plug-in FET preamp giving you low-impedance output while alleviating virtually all noise, hum and buzz common in passive pickups. The outputs are voiced to give you an even volume between the neck and bridge for smooth pickup transitions. This powerful pickup set is available in black, zebra and black/red zebra. The Hot 70 set delivers all the passive feel and dynamic response of traditional passive humbuckers combined with all the advantages of active technology. Complete versatility is at your fingertips from the biggest rock tones to the sweetest cleans and everything between. The past has never sounded so good.

Great set, easy to install, sounds great, I can get a wide variety of tones, perfect balance, not shrill, boomy, or midrange-y. Get an active set with a passive sound!

Incredibly versatile

Cort /Reviewed 11/22/2017

I have a Schecter Sun Valley Shredder with a pair of Hot 70s in black. They are absolutely amazing. Right out of the gate, clean tones sound buttery smooth, which is always important when gauging active pickups. Crank up the gain and you get spot-on classic metal tones as well.

The neck PU shines like a chrome bumper in Arizona. My solos now sound like they are powered by laser beams. I never want to play any of my other guitars because they don't even come close to what the Hot 70s can do with just the neck cranked. There's no over powering bass, it's the absolute perfect level of shadowy dark and crystal clear.

Popping into the bridge pickup side of things gives you probably one of the most serviceable sounds you can get from an electric guitar. It's not too mid woofy and it's not too Pterodactyl screechy. Perfection.

Love the open coil design. Want to take off my own panties when I play these bad boys.
