The H3 uses EMG's pickup technology without sacrificing the presence and open sound of the best passive humbuckers. This model utilizes over wound coils and ceramic magnets, making it hotter than a traditional PAF. These design elements ensure that the tone is very well balanced, with a glassy, slightly scooped mid range and clear highs with great harmonics. In the neck position, this pickup shows a lot of single coil quality, providing a piano like tone on the E and A strings for rhythm playing. In the bridge position, the harmonics jump out and fill your guitar's sounds with the full spectrum of mids, beautiful highs, and a solid low end. This model is suitable for many styles of music: classic rock, metal, punk, alternative, 50s... You name it, this pickup delivers.

What a Difference!!!

Rick /Reviewed 6/6/2014

So this is my 4th EMG set in the past year. Plus I have a set of H4's coming in too. But I dropped these pups in an 2008 ESP LTS EC-256, and wow , what a difference. I mean that goes without saying but, this guitar is now a quality guitar, it already had the great features,mahogany,maple,rosewood etc... But the wood of this guitar sure make these pups sound great...

Hot and Passive

Eeklair /Reviewed 2/14/2014

I got a Jackson DXMG Dinky with these H3 pups as stock equipment. I was excited to get the instrument, but I must say these are the hottest pups I've ever owned at 13.65KhZ each. I'm getting used to them, but even lightly overdriven (3/10) they really crunch. I use a Peavey VK-100 Tube head through a Line 6 4x12 with the stock Celestion's that come with the cab - voiced for the modeling Line 6 head. But I really like the Peavey/Line 6 combination with this guitar. I was thinking about swapping them out for something lower output, but after hours of testing, I think I'll keep these EMG H3's right where they are.
