The 81X provides increased headroom giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMG's are renowned for. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils and powered by a newly designed preamp, the 81X shines with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain.
Traditionally used in the bridge position, this pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix like a hot knife. When used in both positions the sound can only be described as blistering. Other recommended pairings include the 85X and the versatile 81X/60X combo. Give it a try and experience why the "X" factor is exciting players all around the world.
Package includes EMG's exclusive Solderless Install System (Patent pending); split shaft volume/active tone control set, output jack, battery clip set, screws and springs.
