A signature humbucker pickup devised for Mick Thomson's intense sounds forged in the metal band, Slipknot.

Seymour Duncan Blackouts represent the pinnacle in active pickup technology. In his relentless quest for the ultimate tone, Mick Thomson of the metal band Slipknot asked Seymour Duncan for even tighter bottom and more searing top end cut, so Seymour Duncan delivered with the EMTY guitar pickups, a pulverizing addition to their Blackouts line.

A 9-volt active humbucker for aggressive playing styles. Recommended for all metal and heavy rock styles, including extreme low tunings.

Complete setup:
AHB-3 Blackouts Humbuckers are available in individual neck and bridge model options to mix and match them with other Seymour Duncan Blackouts and Livewires Classic II active pickups. All versions come with all necessary mounting hardware, including pots, jack, and a battery clip.

Intended for all guitars with humbuckers. The blade magnets make this Seymour Duncan pickup suitable for both humbucker and Trembucker spacings.

    These pickups are amazing, I picked them up today after getting them put in by the guitar tech and I was blown away! These add a lot of punch to your guitar, the preamp distorts enough that even with a mild distortion you can produce pinch harmonics. These pickups are also loud, due to the increased output. with these I barely need my amp above "0" to feel vibrations in the floor. These pickups are perfect, I recommend them for all tunings (I play in drop C#) and for all guitars (I have them in a Les Paul). If you want more kick to your guitar get these pickups!

  • Great pickups

    As reviewed by gunther Hand on 12/31/2009

    I guess im pretty much the 1st to get this pickup. I put one in the bridge and dont have money right now for the neck yet but i over-estimated these pickups a little. The only reason they are a 4 is because of the cleans. They arent crisp and sparkly enough. Might be my amp though lol. Great distorted tones that dont get muddy at all. Kinda sound like the invaders but with more output, and more lows. My next set will be a original blackout just to see the difference. If you lo tune, GET THESE. C sharp or up id get the originals
