Most people here probably think the term 'pot' comes from it looking like a pot.

"Derrrr, how do i put in a emg81 for super metal tone becuz every1 uses it! its not like it came with step by step intructions of schmatericserdohas!"

every moron can install EMG's, even without the instructions.

most kids take it to the store and pay 200 bucks for it though.

who the hell would want EMG's anyways

People who want EMGs are the people who don't know how to install them. I'll stick to my Duncans.

That guy at Eurotubes is really good. He hooked me up with some matched JJ's for my 5150 with a tube biased for the phase inverter. The sound was a night and day difference. He ships quick too.

haha, because stupid people like emgs doesn't mean that emgs are stupid. I installed my own EMGs and I'm currently building my own guitar, i know my way arund this stuff, so therefore i contradict your statement. (Duncans are good too, getting some in the guitar after this one i'm building, which is getting dimarzios).

EMG's are pretty much without tone variation, but the tone I get out of mine are great.

emg's sound fine, if they actually sound awful, you just need to learn how to work your shit.

No, I know how to work my shit. Shit my Dad is a mechanic and wires shit everyday, I don't think he showed me the wrong way. I'm very sorry I dislike sterile, undefinded tone. Maybe I should put IMO after everything I say because the fact that I'm stating something which deals with personal taste isn't selfevident that it's opinion or anything.

Not being able to detect sarcasm is dumbass quality, disliking generic cold tone, is not.

EMG and tone??? why are they in the same sentence together

I like EMG's just for a raw metal sound... but for versatility EMG's are no good.

thats right, they're good at one thing, and thats the same overall tone. though they can sound pretty brutal, thats all they can do, I'de rather get some Di Marzio tone zone's, Bill Lawrence's or SD's.

with a crap amp emg's will still sounds shit xDx, ever tried playing an ESP horizon with EMG 81/85 set through a marshall AVT? (hell anything will sound like shit through that)

i have played an esp horizon with an 81/60 set but not through an avt. but i sure as hell wouldnt blame the emg for shit tone in that situation. although i could get decent tone out of an avt as long as it's at a reasonable volume.

my guitarist has a gibson sg loaded with an 81/85 set through a 5150 with a crate bv412 loaded with v30's... his setup sounds great.
good guitar with good pickups + good head with good tubes(sovteks & JJ's)+ good cab with good speakers = good tone.

i myself don't do the emg thing, but i wouldnt complain if i did because i like the way they sound.

Wow, I would have never guessed that!


QUESTION!-
What is 'sterile' tone? What makes it sterile?

I have no idea how I could explain it in English, but active pickups sound less 'alive' the passive ones, like theres some 'heart' in the sound missing.
Active ones sound like a straight line, whilst passive's don't, but thats the best bit about them IMO, if everybody would use EMG's there wouldn't be any guitarist with a recognisable sound.

''me and millions of other people can get good tone from emg's even from less than pro amps.''

well everybody has its own taste, but I wouldn't ruine my rack setup with emg's (see attached pic)
I can't get a decent tone from AVT's, not at low volume either, even the clean channel sounds shit.

I don't like the distortion on most marshalls though, a lot of them lack gain, but the JCM900's are pretty neat, plus their clean's sound tubey like they should.

anyways, no EMG's for me, I'll stick to the less populair but better sounding passive pickups

edit: resized pic, looks crap, marshall cab has some rock'n'roll spots from giggin, gator flightcase is ace, I love it

Yeah, most bands I know that use EMGs have a generic tone. Another thing I like about passives is that you don't have to waste a battery on it every month or so.
