EMG JH, James Hetfield Active Humbucker Pickups Black DLC Caps

$ 249.00

“...We have to make something unique and historic... It’s stealth, it’s sleek, it’s fast looking…”

In early 2009, James Hetfield contacted EMG Pickups president Rob Turner and presented him with a challenge: to create a “stealth” looking set that captures the clarity and punch of a passive pickup and still retains the legendary active tone that molded a generation.

The EMG JH, James Hetfield Active Humbucker Pickups with Black DLC Caps features EMG's Solderless Installation System components. The JH Set consists of the JH-N (neck) and the JH-B (bridge). Both were patterned after the pickups James had used for 30 years, but the end result was a completely different animal. The JH-N has individual ceramic poles and bobbins that feature a larger core and are taller than the 60. This produces more attack, higher output, and fuller low end in the neck position. The JH-B uses the same type of core but has steel pole pieces, unlike the 81 that uses bar magnets. This produces the familiar tight attack with less inductance for a cleaner low end.

This set includes Black Diamond-like carbon (DLC) plated caps and EMG’s Solderless Installation System so you can get rocking this great tone quick, easily, and sporting a great sleek look!
