The JH-set replaces a couple of my 60-81 EMG ESP Eclipse II.

Level already installed, no worries, we disconnected the old microphones, it reconnects the new, the longest is the installation of new strings :) In short, it's super easy.

Level of its qualities are active pickups still there, but more punchy, more natural. Although still facing metal, slamming a AC / DC with these pickups no longer seems to be as much a heresy ...

The microwave bridge was clearly built for heavy rhythm, being a bit fatter than the 81 without being rough, the sound becomes even more alive. on the other hand, it is to forget for clean sounds, and I find the 81 a bit better for the solos. And this is where the neck pickup, much less boomy than 60 and in my opinion much more usable.

And this look! What beautiful microphones, it does not hurt ... was quickly ugly fingerprints on the other hand.

The only real flaw of this kit is its price, it also pays the name.
