The new 57 active humbucker from EMG is a bridge pickup suitable for any genre. The unique combination of Alnico magnets combined with steel pole pieces produce a type of tone that will suit players at any level or music type.
The new 66 active humbucker was designed specifically for the neck using Alnico magnets together with ceramic pole pieces to create a perfect rhythm pickup that is full and open.
Players have described the tone of each in varying ways which is the good thing about tone.
The objective was to create a specific bridge and neck active Humbucker that reacted like retro passives but retained the modern noiseless element that are EMG actives.
We think we have done that and that passive players will hear the versatility they want and active loyalists will hear the accurate punch they want.
Both are sold individually and only available in the brushed stainless steel.
