Excels at hard rock.
by Joe from WA USAI don't find EMG's able to be passive like or Paf like. They are built differently and being active just won't react the way I prefer a good passive/Paf can when rolled off. Having said that the 57 is... read more [+] the best EMG I have used for midgain tones. The mids and upper mids seem to be stronger yet there is plenty of bottom. Increase the saturation to hard rock levels and this thing holds its own to any pick up ive used full throttle. Roll off to a mid gain and lower gain tones works well. So clean up to a point works great. I just don't like EMG cleans. Sound a bit processed to my ears. I don't play modern gain amps. My amps are a 2203 JMP, OR15 and a Dr Z Monza. I'm a rocker.

I also have an 85/81/60. I run the 60 in the neck position. I prefer the 85 in the bridge over the 81. I'm using a EC1000 guitar which I plan to change over to some nice passives down the road. The 57 has delayed that. I know EMG's are great for heavy modern tones but they do well for Hard Rock. I recommend the 57 and 85 in the bridge slots. They can do rock too. close [-]
