Ditching the Active EMG idea


Guest

Recommended Posts

Considering Active EMGs I thought would be a great idea but the chunk of change required for two humbuckers and the fact of myself not having the balls to take a router or dremmel tool to widen the control cavity in my Explorer, I thought why not go EMG passive? I have an H3/H3 or H3/H3A set in my Viper-301 and they sound pretty good yet the H4 and H4A is designed specifically for metal. According to users it gives an Alexi W/e his name was, lead guitarist of Children of Bodom. With passive, of course, no routing out of anything to fit a battery, only soldering at most and the rest is a synch (at least, I think). What other stuff do I need? EMG recommends a 250k or 500k volume pot yet I cannot find said pots. And tone knobs stay the same?

the most metal pickups i have are gfs power rails. they have some serious magnets in there. i did not like the sound of them for the 1st year i had them. now i quite like them. i will be looking to get some actives soon. but i may just buy the whole guitar? i would say don't mess get an epi with emg's!:)/
