With scorchingriffs and remarkable stage presence, Zakk Wylde has earned hisreputation as heavy metal's premier lead guitarist. From Ozzy Osbourne, Pride and Glory, and now Black Label Society, Zakk has always used EMGactive pickups. The Zakk Wylde model features the EMG-85 and EMG-81, asused on his signature bull's-eye Les Paul guitar.Installation isliterally a snap-it's solderless, just use the included Quck-connectcables. The 85 uses twoAlnico magnet-loaded coils with a wide aperture to maintain a beefy lowend and a fatter top end. The midrange has great definition and doesn't get foggy or muddy in therhythm position. The EMG-85 works best if you like the naturaldistortion that comes from overdriving the front end of your amp. Underany condition, the humbucker responds accurately to your technique. The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive andamps with a master volume. Whether you're playing power rock'n' roll, or overdriving your amp, there's a razor sharp attack, and incrediblesustain for brilliant soloing. Distortion during lead passages is consistent, sustain is long and thebreakup fades smoothly.
The ceramic magnet in combination with wideaperture steel poles lend a quick attack but the tone stays nice andfat at the same time. Perfect if you're the only guitarist in the band, and need to switch from rhythm to lead and still keep the band moving. Another great thing about the EMG-81 humbucker is it's quiet. If you'replaying at really high gain the last thing you need is noise.1 Output Jack Quik-connect cable. Long Shaft Volume & Tone controls. Shrink tubing (1 red / 1 black).
