A responsive active pickup that achieves exceptionally smooth, soulful tones in a variety of beautiful finishes.

The 85 is one of EMG's first pickups and is the slightly more sophisticated and well rounded half of its famous twin, the 81. Featuring close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets, the 85 is a powerful pickup with exceptional organic tone and versatility. Most often used in the rhythm position, the alnico magnets of this model provide a muscular growl and smooth lead tones to enable you to play the muddiest of blues to the most extreme metal. Try it in the bridge position for exceptional smoothness and soul. This pickup pairs well with just about every other humbucker in EMG's line.

EMG MetalWorks EMG-85 Humbucking Active Pickup Features:

  • Closed aperture coils with Alnico V magnets
    Ideal for rhythm position
    Package Includes: EMG's exclusive Quik-Connect cable, prewired split shaft volume/tone control set, output jack, battery clip set, screws & springs.
