The 85-7H is based on one of EMGs first pickups, the 85. Featuring close aperture coils loaded with Alnico V magnets, the 85-7H is a powerful seven string guitar pickup with exceptional tone and versatility. The Alnico magnets of this model provide a muscular growl and smooth lead tones enabling you to play everything from the blues to the most extreme metal. Although often used in the neck position, make no mistake, the EMG 85-7H sounds great as a bridge pickup thanks to its exceptional smoothness and soul. This pickup pairs well with just about every other humbucker in our the EMG product line.
The 707 has been leading the pack of 7-string guitar pickups since its debut in 2001. The EMG 707 eliminated the problem of a muddy low B string that often lacked rich harmonic character and definition. Featuring Alnico V loaded, wide aperture coils, EMG was able to beef up the Low B string tone while maintaining a balanced and articulate upper register. This provided the responsive and tight sound seven string players grew to love. Whether you are ringing out Opeth-style jazz chords or playing palm muted death chugs, these pickups will articulate every note, chord, and harmonic you ask of them. Used equally in the bridge and neck positions, these pickups will forever change how you hear and play your 7-string guitar.
