Wall of Sound, with Clarity and Punch

James Hetfield wondered, "Why can't I get the clarity and punch of a passive pickup - and the fat wall of sound of an active '81?" With that challenge, EMG set about the serious process of updating the pickup Hetfield has used for thirty years. After exhaustive live-show testing through twenty prototypes, the result is the EMG JH Set: an active two-humbucker rig that will give your axe the new signature sound of Metallica's iconic rhythm guitarist. When you're forging your own sonic frontiers, that's a great place to start from!
