Here's the latest and greatest EMG products for 2011, stay tuned for more product announcements through the year!
Like the active series, H1’s, H2’s, and H4’s are now available with polished stainless steel caps. Using stainless steel ensures the tonal properties remain intact while giving the pickup that classic chrome flare. The HZ humbuckers offer a range of tone from the traditional fullness of the H1 and the vintage tone of the H2, to the more modern H4 and H4A. There is a tone for every player!
The H4 is known as the passive 81 active without the “active”. The H4 uses two bar loaded coils that give it the hot output players want. The H4A uses an Alnico 5 magnet for pronounced mid-range and fat top end. The perfect combo is H4A neck and H4 in the bridge. Now match your chrome & gold hardware!
Coming off the successful release of the SRO Series open coil pickups, the prewired drop-in pickguards feature both the SRO OC1 humbuckers and SC1 single coils loaded in black or white Strat style pickguards. The two models available are the ST-11 that has a traditional three single coil setup (SC1’s), and ST-12 which features a dual OC1 humbucker setup. With the pickups preloaded and wiring complete, the most time consuming part of the install is getting the stock pickups out of your guitar!
The X Series continues to grow in popularity with players around the world and so does the EMG X product lineup. Our bass extended series has now been added to the lineup, offering three different housings so you can choose the right pickup size. X Series pickups deliver a more organic tone with plenty of openness and tons of output when needed. All models come with the exclusive Solderless Install System.
It is classic body style that players from John Entwistle to Nikki Sixx have rocked in studio and on stage. Now available in a passive model, TB-HZ, and a number of active models: TBP, TBJ, TBDC, TBCS and TBTW. The classic Thunderbird bass can now be loaded with more tone than ever. All models come with the exclusive Solderless Install System.
