Seymour Duncan Mick Thomson EMTY Blackouts Now Available for 7-String Guitars
EMTY Blackouts, pickups designed by Seymour Duncan and Mick Thomson of Slipknot, are now available for 7-string guitars.
Thomson was already a Blackouts fan before he and Seymour Duncan collaborated on his signature model pickups.
“Blackouts have a lot more tone than your typical active pickup,” Thomson said. “They sound more real. It’s a bigger sound, with richer harmonics and a wider frequency range.”
EMTY Blackouts maintain those qualities, but they’re custom voiced to suit Thomson’s signature low tunings. Seymour Duncan tightened the bass response for better low-end articulation, avoiding the “woofy” sound that can plague dropped tunings. Thomson also requested more high-end “cut,” but without added harshness.
