      Fatter, louder tones with single-coil pickups; ultra-fat tone when used with humbuckers!

      The EMG SPC or "Strat Presence Control" is a presence control knob that is often called the fat control. The original intent of the SPC was to turn the tone of a single-coil pickup into that of a dual-coil. This is accomplished by boosting the gain in a broad mid-band fashion and reducing the highs. The result is a fatter, louder tone from any single coil pickup, but you can also use the EMG SPC on a humbucker pickup to give you a high output, really fat tone that's great for slide guitar.

      EMG includes an output jack and battery clip set with the SPC control knob.

          Comments about EMG SPC Strat Presence Control Knob:

          I have found that the SPC makes a considerable difference in the sound of a Strat, whether it has passive or active pickups. EMG has made this unit with rigid quality control, and even though, it is suggested that it should be used with other EMG products, it works with active and passive Seymour Duncan pickups, as well as DiMarzios. I would compare it to a turbo charger on an automobile. It gives a little more edge to playing, like a turbo charger adds a little more "umpft," to an auto. This unit has become a welcome addition to my guitar builds. It takes a bit of planning and serious thought, before the installation, but, it is worth the time and the money. I do not recommend any installation of this unit or the battery box that will be needed for the 9 volt battery, unless you are an experienced guitar technichian. EMG suggests that the unit will function at a higher level with an 18 volt set up. At first, I has some reservations about this installation. I found that the 18 volt set up via a double battery box does work much better with this SPC.

            Comments about EMG SPC Strat Presence Control Knob:

            This is the third SPC that I have ordered. Since it works with both passive and active pickups, it is highly functional. There is a 9 volt battery involved, which needs to be remembered. It draws very little from the battery, which is a good point when used with active pickups. Seems to "fatten" the sound quality, and gives better control for achieving this. This is often overlooked, especially on high value instruments. Easy to install, for those who are able to do their own soldering. A bit "pricey" if installed on a less expensive guitar, although it should be a consideration if upgrading the pickups and electronics on an instrument like a Fender Standard Strat, as in "Made In Mexico."
