    Comments about EMG OC1 SRO Open-Coil Passive Humbucker Pickup:

    I have this pickup in 3 of my 16 Guitars .
    It delivers the clarity and Punch that I need.. Without being overly Distorted. I play primarily high gain settings.. And my pickups need to be defined.. Not muddy or mushy

      Love EMG's for Classic and hard rock and Blues. They are pretty hot so I can keep the mags nice and low. These are my second pair, I'v been using them for 5 years in my Warmoth. I own many other Humbuckers in my other electrics but these are my Favorite!

      Comments about EMG OC1 SRO Open-Coil Passive Humbucker Pickup:

      These are very good sounding pickups with a wide range of tones for pop,rock,jazz and blues. I'm not a metal player so I don't know how they would sound for that type of music.These came stock on my Cort M 600 and can be coiled tapped on this guitar for a wider range of tones. Neck pickup tone can be rolled back for jazz, bridge pickup bright enough for surf music (showing my age here) and twangy enough for country. No issues with this guitar and these pickups in the five years I have owned them. I'm not a professional musician but believe these pickups would be more than adequate for a gigging musician.

        Comments about EMG OC1 SRO Open-Coil Passive Humbucker Pickup:

        Okay I got these pick ups for the bridge in my custom guitar and I must say they aren't giving me the sound I hoped for. I generally play metal music so I was looking for a pick up that really suited that style, so I checked these out, brought one, and had it installed. After trying to play these I just can't stand to use them just because they sound to bright and "strat" single coil like. If you like a single coil type sound that's perfect for blues or classic rock, then get them! If you are looking for something to shred with, then DON'T get these pick ups and save your money for some cermatic magnet pick ups!

        Comments about EMG OC1 SRO Open-Coil Passive Humbucker Pickup:

        emg oc1 (b) nd oc1 (n) came pre equiped with my new cort x11, they are a killer for that range and have enough power in them , noise is not much a factor, d bridge pickup tone is bright punchy nd delivers harmonics at its best, its very good for metals , heavy riffs , heavy rock , punk nd even blues (with d coil tap d neck pickup deliveres a warmer tone with d power so its very good for shread solos it is good for iazz , hot blues m metals , neo classicla licks nd even heavy riffs do well here....in short d combination of d bridge nd neck is perfect here...
