This Humbucker Lets Your Guitar Roar - No Batteries Required!

The EMG H4 passive humbucking electric guitar pickup gives you some of the hottest tone you'll find in a passive design! Used extensively in ESP Guitar Company's instruments, the EMG H4 uses two bar-loaded coils for humongous tone. This pickup - the passive equivalent in tone to the EMG 81 active pickup - is especially well-suited for the bridge position. HZ pickups come with EMG's 5-wire quik-connect output, which allows for a number of wiring schemes. They're also fully shielded, so you'll always get low-noise operation from the EMG H4.

EMG H4 Passive Humbucking Pickup Features:
  • Dual bar-loaded coils
  • Big output for a passive design
  • Great for hard rock and metal styles
  • Includes 5-wire quik-connect
  • Fully shielded
  • Black
The EMG H4 gives you massive tone and output from a passive humbucker design!

Excellent, versatile passive pup

I've been using EMGs in guitars for some time. They're strong but not overbearing and offer a clean, across-the-board even tone. The solderless switch is an excellent idea, saves time and (if you're like me) burns on the hands, fingers, work surface, etc. I use these to play classic rock and classic metal, and they're well-suited for both genres.
Music background: Professional singer, guitarist, songwriter

Better then active equivalent

I owned a Schecter Damien 6 with these and a Hellraiser with the active version both at the same time and did recording with both. I actually prefer the passive version! Compared to the active the H4 was more dynamic and gained back alot of frequencies that the active compression takes away. This also made it more versatile making it able to handle things other than metal. If you are on a budget or don't want to dissect your guitar to install an active pickup then I suggest you seriously give the H4 some consideration
