hi

i wanna buy some emgs(81,85) but my budget is low. are there some lesser priced alternatives to emgs? or mb some other pus, but i want them to do metal+ pinch harmonics good.

if there is not any, then is anyone selling emg hz's now? or where can i buy them low-priced working(including used)?
my budget is like 80usd...

there are sure some decent alternatives to emgs, i like the guitarheads pickups, you can get a set (bridge+neck) for the price of one emg 81.

heres a link to the site:

if you wanna here a comparison between these and an emg 81, here is some samples:

yeah, i was just looking at them. monstrous output 57.4k ohms. think of getting them. are they a decent alternative to true emgs? and what are they compared to emgs, 81's or 81+85?
