Jim Root's Signature EMG Set

For years, Jim Root (Slipknot, Stone Sour) was a devoted user of the EMG 81/60 pickup set. In 2017, he and EMG set out to create a set of pickups that combine the strength and power of the 81/60 with the versatility of EMG's Retro Active design. After testing multiple prototypes during the recording sessions for Slipknot's 6th studio album, the Daemonum set was born. Consisting of two passive humbuckers driven through an active preamp, these pickups create a massive wall of sound that cuts to the front of the mix. Whether you're playing palm-muted rhythm parts or sizzling solos, Jim Root's signature set of Daemonum EMGs will help you find the perfect tone. The Jim Root Daemonum Set includes EMG's exclusive solderless install system.


Retro Active: the best of both worlds

The Jim Root Daemonum pickup set is a member of EMG's Retro Active Series. By combining old-school passive pickups with an active preamp, these pickups deliver the feel and response of passive pickups with the advantages of active pickup systems. Retro Active pickups are incredibly responsive and versatile. When running wide open, they can create massive metal tones. As soon as you roll back the volume though, they sweeten up for glassy cleans.
