EMG Pickups - Sensitivity, Tone, and Power!

The EMG 85 is built for hard-core rockin'! This high-output active humbucking pickup was born to drive your amp into the sweetest overdrive and distortion, and it's at its best at high volumes. Perfect for rhythm guitar but equally well suited for lead work, the EMG 85's sound can be characterized as beefy, and it's the perfect companion to the EMG 81. This humbucker has become a first-call choice for some of the most respected metal guitarists of all time; you'll love what the EMG 85 does for your tone.
