Product Description

In early 2009, James Hetfield contacted EMG Pickups president Rob Turner and presented him with a challenge: to create a “stealth” looking set that captures the clarity and punch of a passive pickup and still retains the legendary active tone that molded a generation.

The JH Set consists of the JH-N (neck) and the JH-B (bridge). Both pickups were patterned after the pickups James has used for 30 years but the end result was a completely different animal. The JH-N has individual ceramic poles and bobbins that feature a larger core and are taller than the 60. This produces more attack, higher output, and fuller low end in the neck position. The JH-B uses the same type of core but has steel pole pieces, unlike the 81 that uses bar magnets. This produces the familiar tight attack with less inductance for a cleaner low end.

The JH Set features standard string spacing and short shaft length.

The best active pickup on the market

Product Review

I own every active pickup on the market from fishman, Seymour Duncan to EMG and in my opinion the het set is the king of active pickups from dynamics to tone.

Good to Pretty Good

Product Review

I needed more beef than the Mustaine Livewire's pickup set that I had in my '93 Jackson RR Pro. I really liked the EMG81 that came stock in my RR24 pro so I searched for an EMG81 set and decided on the Het Set. I am pleased with the tone of the 81 in the bridge. It does have that tight attack, if not tighter than the plastic covered 81's but I feel the 60 in the neck is too boomy. It has too much low end for leads for my taste as well as cleans. Now I'm wondering if I'd have been more happy with the 85 in the bridge... I do appreciate the quick connect, solderless connections, although I did have to lengthen the input jack wires, Rhoads V problems I've grown to live with.

Excellent tone and bite

Product Review

These pickups sound amazing in my Les Paul. The bridge is where it's at. But for solos the neck is great. If you're looking for the extra bite to your hi gain, these are definitely it.

Installed these in a guitar that had the EMG 81/60 combo. Totally interchangeable and easy to connect. I was done in under 30 minutes.
