EMG 89 Active Humbucker Pickup, Black
For humbucker equipped guitar, any position
Inside the EMG-89 pickup are both single and dual-coil pickups, each with its own output. The single-coil mode is an Alnico loaded stacked EMG-SA. The dual-coil mode consists of two Alnico loaded coils opposite one another creating a pickup similar to the EMG-85. A push/pull volume or tone enables you to switch from the clarity of a single-coil to the fatness of a humbucking. Virtually noiseless in both modes, it can also be used with several EMG accessories such as the SPC, EXG expander, or the PA2 preamp booster.
The EMG-89 Dual Mode Pickup has been through two generations. Our original Dual-mode (EMG-DM) design was incredibly sophisticated for its time (1979). The DM was an 18-Volt model with a single output available only in an Alnico magnet version. The EMG-DM was abandoned in late 1985, but the concept was revived early in 1989 when we came upon a more innovative design featuring "two pickups in one", the current EMG-89. The EMG-89's separate outputs give you option to utilize EMG tone enhancing accessory circuits on either pickup output.
Package Includes: EMG's exclusive Quik-Connect cable, prewired push/pull volume/tone control set, output jack, battery clip set, screws & springs.

Brilliant sounding humbucker and the split coil is very spanky and quacky. Then in humbucker mode it delivers hard metal with great harmonic s and sustain. It's loaded with alnico 5 mags. Best of both worlds.
