EMG 808X-BK Black.

Based on the original 707 the EMG 808X gives players all the tone and presence they demand in an 8 string guitar pickup with the added headroom of the X series preamp. The EMG 808X eliminates the problem of a muddy low F# string that often lacks rich harmonic character and definition. Featuring Alnico V loaded wide aperture coils EMG was able to beef up the tone of the low strings while maintaining a balanced and articulate upper register. This along with the X preamp provides the responsive and dynamic control that eight string players love. This pickup will articulate every note chord and harmonic you ask of it. Used equally in the bridge and neck positions the EMG 808X pickup will forever change how you hear and play your 8-strängading guitar. Solderless wiring makes installing the 808X easy to do on your own.

PAF 36th Anniversary DP103G14.

Here are the characteristics that make a great vintage humbucker a soft magnetic field sweet tone perfect balance between warmth and clarity the ability to go from clean to distorted by pick attack alone. For our PAF 36th Anniversary Neck we wanted to continue in the path of pioneers such as Seth Lover designer of the original Patent Applied For humbucker and create pickups that combine all of the characteristics of great vintage humbuckers. These pickups are not merely clones. We re-engineered the PAF using our patented technology and Larry DiMarzio’s own 1959 cherry sunburst Gibson Les Paul as the reference. Larry’s Gibson Les Paul has a uniquely amazing sound and it’s not only due to the pickups - it’s the total fusion of many elements of the guitar itself. Although the pickups have a weak magnetic field the sound is well defined - almost like a single-coil. We duplicated the weaker magnetic field in order to allow the strings to vibrate longer as well as focus and articulate the attack and output. We use computer-controlled winders to consistently layer the 42-gauge custom-coated wire achieving the exact frequency response we want. Then it’s dipped in our custom formula to eliminate squeal and microphonics. The cover is made from nickel-silver and our new plating makes it more magnetically transparent than the originals. The PAF 36th Anniversary Neck is smooth but not muddy. It performs equally well in the neck or bridge just as the best humbuckers from the 50s did. We’ll build the PAF 36th Anniversary any way you want it. Choose the bobbin style - vintage glossy or modern matte the type of base - traditional long-legged or standard short-legged and the type of cable - vintage single-conductor or 4-conductor. The PAF 36th Anniversary Neck is available uncovered and we also offer three types of covers - standard polished and plated buffed with no plating and our vintage worn cover that looks so authentic and broken in that you’ll swear it’s been hanging around since 1959.

There is no reference standard for the sound of a humbucker from the 1950s. All of them had variations in output and tone and these differences could be quite large. Recently we have focused our research on making pickups with warm highs and bright lows. This combination is only found in our favorite vintage humbuckers and it’s really good for a pickup intended for both the neck and bridge positions. It allows the bass strings in the neck position to avoid muddiness and the treble strings in the bridge position to be warm and not brittle.

Evolution Neck DP158FBK F-spaced.

The Evolution Neck and Bridge humbuckers are the result of two years of research to come up with the right sound for a very demanding player Steve Vai and his Ibanez Jems. Both pickups are designed for maximum impact and power. The neck pickup is fat punchy and loud. The bridge pickup is tight aggressive and louder. Both pickups have our patented dual-resonance configuration to reproduce more harmonic overtones than conventional humbuckers. Evolution pickups are not polite-sounding and they’re not for the inexperienced but – if you’ve got the chops and a hot amp – your sound will burn. The Evolution pickups were originally designed with live gigs in mind but they have so much presence and definition that they’re great recording pickups too they slice right through even the densest mix.

Air Classic™ Neck DP190G.
We love the sound of late 1950s humbuckers but we didn t want to simply imitate them by using Alnico 2 or “aged Alnico 5 magnets. Airbucker™ technology was created to capture all of the best sonic qualities of vintage humbuckers while avoiding the technical problems. The Air Classic™ has the same sweet sound as a classic humbucker but Airbucker™ technology permits us to use a more reliable full-strängadength Alnico 5 magnet and still reduce string-pull to increase sustain and sensitivity. The result is an almost vocal three-dimensional sound that jumps off the string faster and stays true as it sustains. The sense of touch and control this provides will offer you an unequalled ability to create your own sound.

There s no doubt that a weak magnetic field allows a vibrating string to ring longer but the standard Alnico II/weakened Alnico 5 method also muddies the tone the longer the string sustains.

PAF Joe™ DP213FBK F-spaced.

The PAF Joe™ is the latest neck pickup we developed for Joe Satriani. Joe wanted a neck position humbucker that combined the best qualities of the PAF Pro with those of a late 50s Gibson humbucker. Joe describes this tone as being “tubular. Through the use of Virtual Vintage technology clear-sounding low frequencies are blended with warm-sounding mids and high frequencies which makes the PAF Joe™ equally good for chords and single notes. Joe first used it throughout the 2003 G3 tour.

Recommended For All positions solid semi-solid and hollow-body electric guitars.

Tech Talk
What does “tubular mean? In this case it means making low notes “speak more clearly while giving high notes a rounder voicing. This accomplishes two goals chords have better definition and single notes at higher fret positions remain warm-sounding rather than getting thinner. The PAF Joe™ has slightly less power than the PAF Pro. It balances well with bridge pickups like the PAF Pro FRED The Breed™ Neck Model Air Norton™ and Norton.

D Activator™ Bridge DP220BK.

The D Activator™ Bridge has an enriched harmonic quality and the notes want to sing. Both the D Activator™ Neck and Bridge pickups were designed to eliminate the sterile edginess commonly associated with active pickups. The D Activator™ Bridge pickup is about 25% louder than the D Activator™ Neck. Since we were developing both pickups as a set from the ground up we adjusted the volume levels on the pickups so they are balanced. That way when you switch from the neck to the bridge you don’t hear a drop in volume — also a frequent problem with active pickups — and they don’t use batteries.

Recommended For Bridge position.

Tech Talk
An interesting fact about the most popular active bridge pickups is that they aren’t incredibly loud. Instead they have a strong focused attack that hits the amp very hard and makes them ‘feel’ more powerful than they actually spec out to be. This is an important characteristic that we needed to capture with the D Activator™ bridge pickup. We also wanted to avoid the limiting effect that can occur with active pickups when they are played hard. Our pickup is passive with a lot of headroom and it responds quickly and accurately to changes in pick attack. A hard pick attack doesn’t cause the signal to flatten out and picking more softly or rolling the volume control down lets the sound clean up naturally. Like all passive pickups D Activator™ pickups require controls with a minimum value of 250Kohms. 500K is the standard all around value and our 1Megohm tone control is best for long cable runs.

One thing has stayed consistent throughout John Petrucci’s long and successful career the DiMarzio pickups in his guitars. John has been pushing the envelope of progressive metal since the late eighties and the new DiMarzio Crunch Lab™ Bridge Model ensued from our most recent collaboration with John. He used it throughout Dream Theater’s tenth studio album “Black Clouds & Silver Linings. John swears this is the best live and studio sound he has ever had and the name says it all — “crunch is what it’s all about with a big tight sound that’s neither muddy nor thin.

The Crunch Lab™ is noteworthy bad pun alert for what it doesn’t do it’s not a screamer and it’s not about thundering lows. Its physical appearance is identical to the D Sonic™ but the internal design is a lot different. It’s louder and the highs have more depth. The lows and mids are more open and this is crucial for playing chords with body and presence through a gained-out amp. The voicing of the pickup is also different enough to the point that John prefers the Crunch Lab™ to be installed in almost all of his guitars including the JP Bari with the solid bar toward the neck regardless of the guitar’s tuning.

FAT 55. EMG Retro Active Fat 55 set Black.

The EMG Retro Active Fat 55 humbucker set was inspired by the ingenuity tone and feel of the original PAF evoking the best tones of the 50’s and 60’s. No longer limited by the technology of that era this classic looking humbucker set adds a newly designed external preamp that provides the benefit of a low-impedance output virtually no hum or added noise. The Alnico magnets in traditional open coil bobbins deliver fat warm lows without losing any clarity on the high end. The Fat 55 is capable of sitting back in a blues riff or rising up to the overdriven solo with ease. Staying true to conventional design can bring buzz and hum which is where the new plug-on preamp comes in. The preamp cleans up all of the output noise but retains the passive character of your tone. This is a passive pickup with all the benefits of active technology yielding a new level of tonal control.

Evo 2™ Bridge DP215BK.

The original Evolution Bridge Model did exactly what Steve Vai wanted it to do kick butt and produce serious scream. Then he wanted something a little more complex — the same basic tone with increased headroom and dynamics so that the sound kills on 10 and cleans up when the volume is rolled down. With a little less power than the original Evolution Evo 2™ balances perfectly with the Evolution Neck Model and performs equally well with high gain and vintage amps.

Recommended For Bridge position in solid body guitars.

Tech Talk
Although Steve was happy with the basic sound of the original Evolution bridge pickup he felt that a pickup with similar tone and less output would be useful — particularly for live performances. He also requested the frequency response in the 4000Hz to 5000Hz range to be reduced slightly compared to the original Evolution Bridge Model. The Evo 2™ accomplishes these tasks by using a less powerful magnet to reduce the pickup’s power and patented Virtual Vintage technology to alter the frequency response without drastically changing the overall tone. The Virtual Vintage technology also allows the Evo 2™ to produce a very good single-coil sound when switched to split mode.

Blaze™ Neck Model DP700BK.

This is the model originally designed for the neck position of the Ibanez Universe. The neck position needed to be warm but not too fat nobody wants the low “B sounding like a tuba right? so we scooped out some of the mids to brighten up the low notes and we kept the power down to a reasonable level to avoid unnecessary sludge. You can get everything from a good jazz sound with a clean amp to a wall-of-sound with heavy overdrive. Many players have discovered the Blaze™ Neck Model is also a very good bridge pickup when playing with a serious amount of distortion — power chords retain more openness and single notes have a lot of clarity.

EMG-60 har tätt sittande spolar med keramiska magneter vilket ger den brightaste attacken av alla våra humbuckers. Samtidigt har den hög utsignal och klarhet i diskanten som gör att den hörs i alla sammanhang. Metal- och extremgitarrister har upptäckt att detta är en sanslös mik för kompgitarr. James Hetfields signaturgitarrer har EMG-60 som standard för att dess tydliga crunch gör det möjligt för en kompgitarrist att höras på en scen där bandet pumpar ut mycket mellanregister.

The 60 humbucker packs plenty of output with a balance of thick boosted mids big lows and singing highs. Featuring close aperture coils similar to a mini-humbucker this model produces rich harmonic overtones with plenty of sustain. Due to its ceramic magnets the EMG 60 has a full treble response and loads of output great for distinct single-note solos. The 60 provides clarity and character to your guitar and works very well in the neck position. Like all EMG active guitar and bass pickups the 60 installs without the use of a soldering iron making it easy to do at home.

PAF 36th Anniversary DP103BK.

Here are the characteristics that make a great vintage humbucker a soft magnetic field sweet tone perfect balance between warmth and clarity the ability to go from clean to distorted by pick attack alone. For our PAF 36th Anniversary Neck we wanted to continue in the path of pioneers such as Seth Lover designer of the original Patent Applied For humbucker and create pickups that combine all of the characteristics of great vintage humbuckers. These pickups are not merely clones. We re-engineered the PAF using our patented technology and Larry DiMarzio’s own 1959 cherry sunburst Gibson Les Paul as the reference. Larry’s Gibson Les Paul has a uniquely amazing sound and it’s not only due to the pickups - it’s the total fusion of many elements of the guitar itself. Although the pickups have a weak magnetic field the sound is well defined - almost like a single-coil. We duplicated the weaker magnetic field in order to allow the strings to vibrate longer as well as focus and articulate the attack and output. We use computer-controlled winders to consistently layer the 42-gauge custom-coated wire achieving the exact frequency response we want. Then it’s dipped in our custom formula to eliminate squeal and microphonics. The cover is made from nickel-silver and our new plating makes it more magnetically transparent than the originals. The PAF 36th Anniversary Neck is smooth but not muddy. It performs equally well in the neck or bridge just as the best humbuckers from the 50s did. We’ll build the PAF 36th Anniversary any way you want it. Choose the bobbin style - vintage glossy or modern matte the type of base - traditional long-legged or standard short-legged and the type of cable - vintage single-conductor or 4-conductor. The PAF 36th Anniversary Neck is available uncovered and we also offer three types of covers - standard polished and plated buffed with no plating and our vintage worn cover that looks so authentic and broken in that you’ll swear it’s been hanging around since 1959.

Tech Talk
There is no reference standard for the sound of a humbucker from the 1950s. All of them had variations in output and tone and these differences could be quite large. Recently we have focused our research on making pickups with warm highs and bright lows. This combination is only found in our favorite vintage humbuckers and it’s really good for a pickup intended for both the neck and bridge positions. It allows the bass strings in the neck position to avoid muddiness and the treble strings in the bridge position to be warm and not brittle.

Evolution Bridge DP159FBK F-spaced.
The Evolution Neck and Bridge humbuckers are the result of two years of research to come up with the right sound for a very demanding player Steve Vai and his Ibanez Jems. Both pickups are designed for maximum impact and power. The neck pickup is fat punchy and loud. The bridge pickup is tight aggressive and louder. Both pickups have our patented dual-resonance configuration to reproduce more harmonic overtones than conventional humbuckers. Evolution pickups are not polite-sounding and they’re not for the inexperienced but – if you’ve got the chops and a hot amp – your sound will burn. The Evolution pickups were originally designed with live gigs in mind but they have so much presence and definition that they’re great recording pickups too they slice right through even the densest mix.
Recommended For Bridge position in solid body guitars.
Tech Talk
The Evolution bridge pickup works best for soloing where the sound must cut through. Low notes are very tight and the highs have a lot of presence enabling the pickup to be heard in almost any situation. Obviously the Evolution was designed for Steve s Ibanez Jems but it can add a lot of punch and definition to Gibson Les Pauls and similar set-neck guitars - even the lowest bass notes really jump out of the amp and feedback occurs easily with a wide range of harmonic overtones.
