Santa Rosa, CA (October 29, 2012) -- EMG has announced new Alnico V humbuckers. Read the details in their press release:

StreamImage.aspx?Image_ID=FE09B02C-0B1A-The new 57 active humbucker from EMG is a bridge pickup suitable for any genre. The unique combination of Alnico V magnets combined with steel pole pieces produce a type of tone that will suit players at any level or music type. The new 66 active humbucker was designed specifically for the neck using Alnico V magnets together with ceramic pole pieces to create a perfect rhythm pickup that is full and open.

Both the 57 and the 66 were designed from the ground up and push the boundaries of what is considered the standard humbucker. “Musicians guide us and inspire us to create modern tools for tone...” states EMG’s founder Rob Turner. “..the 57 and 66 are a result of that input and are fresh, versatile tools for any player out there.”

The 57 and 66 are currently only available in EMG’s exclusive brushed stainless steel cap. Each pickup is sold individually. MSRP $199.99
