Hey guys....

I already know that EMGs are great...81-85 it's a great combination used by many guitarists and 60-81 is great too......etc....

But recently I saw Zakk Wylde Model EMG Pickups and Kerry King Model EMG Pickups...

Now I'm confused because Zakk and Kerry use 81-85....so those Zakk EMG model and Kerry Model are 81-85 but better?? I mean those "special" models are better than the other ones??...(the yare 81-85 anyway) Are they different? Does zakk or kerry REALLY use those special pickups or is it just a way of making money?

the kerry king pack has a PA-2, its a booster. thats the difference.

And does that difference change the sound? is it MUCH better? if I buy a pack with 81-85 zakk wylde model will it sound more like zakk than a regular pair of 81-85???

Nope. just money grab.

no it wont. the bost in the KK pack just means you flick it and your sound get louder, like for solos to cut thru. and yes the packs are just a way to make money.

the Zakk Wylde pickup set isn't a way to waste money at all

an EMG pickup new is 99$ and the Zakk Wylde set is $200.

You would be paying the same money if you bought them seperately or bought the Zakk Wylde set.

I would just get the Wylde set.

i'd personally go out of my way not to buy the zakk wylde set. his beard intimidates me.

he looks like a viking!

but i think i'd prefer kerry's......i prefer metal instead of rock...heavier stuff...and it has that boost (I don't know if it's good but it's an extra feature that may be cool..)
