OVERVIEW

Provides your guitar with a set of pickups that'll give you a well-rounded tone no matter what genre you love to play.

This special set featuring a 57 and a 66, comes in EMG's exclusive brushed steel cap giving them a sleek modern look that will compliment any instrument. The 57 is a true original, a bridge pickup designed for today's player regardless of style or genre. The unique combination of Alnico V magnets and steel pole pieces evoke an unmistakably PAF-like quality in its tone.

The active attributes provide the headroom and punch necessary to deliver unparalleled definition and presence. It is designed and voiced specifically for the bridge position. Complementing the 57 is the 66, a result of pickup design innovation inspired by the specific needs and requests of today's players. Alnico V magnets provide the warm, smooth mid-range and expansive lows while the ceramic pole pieces bring out the clarity in the upper register. It is designed and voiced as a neck pickup.

      Comments about EMG 57/66 Set:

      I own the Zack Wyld 85/89, 81/89tw, Het Set, 81/85 passive.
      all around I like the 57/66 the most. The Het Set is something of beauty but I feel the 57/66 set isn't as compressed so it leans more towards a passive sound yet retains the EMG sound.
      What really gets me is the single notes in distortion, they really stick out and these things are very good clean. If you want something right smack in the middle of a passive and an active you won't be disappointed with the 57/66.

        Comments about EMG 57/66 Set:

        I've owned a lot of emgs. These reminded me of the Het Set but no quite as tight and brighter, the clarity on them is great, all around good sound. This is my favorite pickups.

          Comments about EMG 57/66 Set:

          I have never tried an active pickup before installing the EMG 57/66 set. But I wanted to upgrade the pickups in my Gibson LPJ. Decided it was time to try these after reading a few good reviews. So, I recorded a couple of sample tracks with the stock 498s and then re-recorded the tracks after installing the EMGs. And wow, it was like I recorded in high-def after switching to the EMGs and the tone was unbelievable. It took me an hour to remove the 498s and install the EMGs; and the brushed black chrome look great on my vintage rubbed LPJ. If you are on the fence about active pickups - these have a warm tone that I love. Give them a shot.
