Mick Thomson EMTY Blackouts
Now Available for 7-String
Seymour Duncan has
just announced the release of a 7-string version of
Slipknot guitarist Mick Thompson's EMTY Blackouts active
The pulverizing tone that defines Slipknot and Mick Thomson is
now available in a 7-string pickup, just like our regular
Mick was already a Blackouts fan before we collaborated on his
signature pickup. "Blackouts have a lot more tone than your typical
active pickup," he says. "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 Mick's signature low tunings. We've tightened the
bass response for better low-end articulation, avoiding the "woofy"
sound that can plague dropped tunings. Mick also requested more
high-end "cut," but without added harshness.
The result: EMTY Blackouts, an active pickup that has become a
weapon of choice for metal guitarists worldwide.
