Summary Make the maggots squirm with Slipknot guitarist Mick Thomsons signature active humbucker set. Description Mick Thomson of Slipknot asked us for a set of Blackouts customized to complement the complex, crushing riffs he plays in dropped tunings. I had them tighten up the bottom because tuning low like we are, you dont need that lower woof, Mick says. And I had the top end adjusted a little bit for more cut without being harsh or scratchy. Theyre extremely quiet, theyre extremely clean and they have a lot more tone than the typical active pickup. They sound more real. The harmonics are richer. Its a bigger sound across a wider range of frequencies. The EMTY bridge model has the energy and output of the original Blackouts but with Micks custom voicing, which emphasizes the percussive chunk of palm-muted notes. The EMTY neck model is designed for for crystal clear clean tones, but when you crank up the gain youll hear more aggressive mids and increased sustain; great for high-speed solos and ominous melodic interludes. The EMTY Blackouts set comes with all the hardware needed for installation: including pots, hardware, quick-connector cables, capacitor, output jack, battery clip and wire. If your guitar already has active pickups with quick-connector cables installed, you can simply unplug them and plug in your Blackouts. EMTY Blackouts are made in Santa Barbara, California.
