Make the maggots squirm with Slipknot guitarist Mick Thomson’s signature active humbucker. A tuned preamp yields a tighter focus to this active pickup for Mick Thomson's violent flurries of staccato shred.
Mick Thomson of Slipknot came to us wanting a set of Blackouts that had increased high-end and a tighter low-end to compliment the complex, crushing riffs he plays in severely dropped tunings.

“I had them tighten up the bottom because tuning low like we are, you don’t need that lower ‘woof,’” Mick says. “And I had the top end adjusted a little bit for more cut without being harsh or scratchy. They’re extremely quiet, they’re extremely clean and they have a lot more tone than the typical active pickup. They sound more real. The harmonics are richer. It’s a bigger sound across a wider range of frequencies.”

The resulting EMTY model has a special custom voicing for crystal clear clean tones with a distinct edginess to them. With the gain cranked up, the top and bottom stay tight and focuse
