Overview

The EMG 91HZ Active Pickup was the first "floating" humbucker pickup to give archtop guitar players the benefits of a low-impedance pickup.

The EMG-91 is the first EMG Pickup that wasn't designed for Rock and Roll. Using Alnico magnets and a specially designed internal preamp, the EMG-91 produces a naturally warm, present tone reminiscent of some of the older floating pickups. The broad bandwidth and resonance curve of this pickup draws out the instrument's natural tone. The result is warmth with just the right touch of fidelity. Remarkably thin (only .400" 10.5mm) it will fit comfortably at the end of the fingerboard and not interfere with string or top vibrations.

The installation of a 9-Volt battery has always been of concern to archtop players and builders alike, but the results achieved with the EMG-91 are well worth any extra effort the battery might require. Small (16 mm) volume and tone controls are included. Both a standard side mounted jack, long panel jack, or the EMG Ultrajak can be included along with a standard 9 Volt battery clip. The EMG-91 is available with a mounting bracket (screws included) that attaches to the fingerboard.
