      A brighter, crunchier humbucker.

      The H1 pickup features a very traditional internal design but uses over-wound coils and a ceramic magnet. The H1 design has the punch and fullness of the older passive designs along with added brilliance for a better-defined tone. Bright but not muddy in the rhythm position and real crunchy in the bridge.


      Put in the cart and get the H1 tone today!

      Comments about EMG H1 Passive Electric Guitar Humbucker Pickup:

      The H1's are nice passive pickups by emg, but people need to get past the whole idea that emg pickups need to be active to be good, the HZ series pickups aren't bad, my only complaint is most of them look like all other emg pickups out there, they have some passive ones where you get to see the bobbins, but those are made overseas and not in the USA like the H1's.
      people need to realize these pickups are more or less designed for classic rock, hard rock, or southern rock, they do sound good clean, sort of like a PAF, they are not designed for metal.

      H1 neck and bridge pickup set

      Comments about EMG H1 Passive Electric Guitar Humbucker Pickup:

      The H1 neck pup is excellent with fine note detail and excellent crunch along with excellent sustain char with nice slow even note fade out. However the h1 bridge pickup I got has horrible sustain that at best is half as long as the neck pickup. The bridge pickups note fade out is very fast. Sound qaulity while it sounds is goodbut the lousy sustain char makes it nonuseable to me. I have contacted emg this evening to ask if its a defective pickup or if this unusual diff in sustain between the h1 bridge and neck is normal. If emg says its normal, I'll be returning the pickup and reinstalling the bridge pup I had in the guitar before. If emg says its defective pup will I'll have to decide wether to return the bridge pickup for refund or exchange. The neck pickup is a keeper though based on its excellent sustain, excellent note detail with chords and excellent crunch factor. Low scores in the review are due to lousy performance of the bridge pickup I received for the set.

      h1 in my opinion

      By george-Vsa6_

      from chester, va

      Comments about EMG H1 Passive Electric Guitar Humbucker Pickup:

      I got the emg h1 set to replace the g400's hot rod humbuckers. There is very little noise. I love the crunch and clarity that the bridge gives. Used with a metal muff and a fender clean channel, I really like my setup. The h1's keep their tone even when I throw a lot of distortion on them (others may get drowned out).

      Definitly not for metal

      Comments about EMG H1 Passive Electric Guitar Humbucker Pickup:

      This is not a metal pickup. I have a set in my ESP with an afterburner. The tone isn't there until I pull on the afterburner. It's crunchy in the bridge but it breaks up. Sounds good clean but thats about it. Still an EMG, so the quality is there.

      NOT for Heavy Metal

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about EMG H1 Passive Electric Guitar Humbucker Pickup:

      You can play Judas Priest with it and get away with some Pantera but it's really not a metal pickup, depends on the amp of course. Best for playing ZZ top or AC/DC. Most versatile of any pickups I own very significant differences when tapped and adjusting polepeices. POLEPEICES REALLY HELP SHAPE TONE.

      Not too bad.....

      Comments about EMG H1 Passive Electric Guitar Humbucker Pickup:

      The EMG H1 pickup has a very crisp and clear sound on clear channel and a moderately bright crunch on distortion but there is very little hum or buzzing. If you want a good crunchy tone these pickups are for you. I also suggest using 500k volume pots for these pickups if you want an extra 3db gain boost.
