Kirk Hammett has been ripping up solos for Metallica for over 30 years. Riffs on Ride the Lighting, Master of Puppets, and the Black Album are a must learn for all rock guitarists. For Kirk, his tone starts with EMG pickups. “Metallica’s crunch sound is often cleaner than people expect”, says Kirk. “My taste in tone has definitely changed over the years. I don’t like to use as much distortion these days—I prefer my tone to be nice and crisp”. The new Kirk Hammett Bone Breaker set is the result of taking the success of Metallica tone and adding some new elements without sacrificing gain for clean or vice-versa. By making slight pre-amp adjustments and combining Alnico 5 and Ceramic magnets the perfect tone-beast was created. The Bone Breaker set consist of the BB-B Ceramic bridge and the BB-N Alnico 5 neck pickups. If you are looking for rhythm or lead tone, the Kirk Hammett Bone Breaker set offers crisp crushing leads or smooth rounded rhythm tone at the flip of the selector switch.

Fantastic

Eric /Reviewed 2/6/2018

I replaced an 81/60 combo in an LTD EC-1000 with the KH-BBs and they sound absolutely fantastic. The guitar is tuned to drop C and the pickups give every note a clarity that I felt was somewhat lacking with the 81/60 combo in the downtuned guitar. Highly recommend the KH-BBs.

Awesome neck pickup! Much improved from the 60! The bridge pickup absolutely screams! Piece of cake to install with the solder less connections! Once again EMG does it again!

Better tone, more sustain. I actually like the neck pickup, you might see me actually using my switch more! I like that they are not priced as high as other signature sets too. The bridge pickup has a little better tone than the 81. Sounds alot better on rhythms and absolutely screams on leads, and the sustain is unbelievable! Really glad I picked these up! Will definitely buy more of these!
