Details

The 81 is our most famous model; the one that started a revolution. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone is endowed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain. Traditionally used in the bridge position, this pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix like a hot knife. When used in both positions the sound can only be described as blistering. Other recommended pairings include the classic 81/85 setup and the versatile 81/60 combo. During our search for sourcing the best available chrome finish cover cap, we found that the available products could not be ordered with any consistency. Most importantly, since the manufacturing process would not be controlled by us, there was no way of knowing how the sound and tonal performance characteristics of our pickups would be affected. This characteristic was something that also could vary from batch to batch. Finally, we could not find any US manufacturers. We knew at that point, that the buy solution would not work for us. Since putting a nickel or chrome plating on a common base metal is just a low cost way to simulate polished stainless steel, we decided to look at the feasibility of doing the real thing. This was the build solution. EMG engineers worked out a way to produce a one piece, high quality, mirror polished, stainless steel cover cap while maintaining comparable pricing to the plated versions. In addition, the sound and tonal properties were virtually identical to our molded cover caps, and controlling the process guarantees the consistency and high quality level of the products. We are pleased to now offer humbuckers in the real deal, mirror polished stainless steel, known as Chrome EMG. The gold version is the same polished stainless steel cover cap with a gold colored finish that is commonly used to harden machine tools. It is a finish that both hardens the cover cap surface and penetrates the stainless steel substrate, rather than surface coating it as a plating would. This assures a durable, longer lasting surface finish that will stand up to your pounding riffs and all the abuse the road can dish out. Designed and produced in the USA.
