Seymour Duncan AHB-3B Mick Thomson Blackouts EMTY Bridge

Seymour Duncan announced the release of a new addition to its Blackouts Humbucker series: the Blackouts AHB-3 Thomson EMTY.

The Blackouts AHB-3 EMTY is designed to provide “distinctive, screaming metal tones, packing a serious mid-range punch, thicker, darker chords than other humbuckers and hard-hitting driving leads, ” according to SD. The 9-volt active Blackouts are said to be designed specifically for more aggressive playing styles including players using extreme low tunings.

The EMTY takes it a step further, created to meet Mick Thomson’s personal specs and metal desires.

The AHB series was designed to convey a less compressed tone, with a more extended frequency response helping to cancel hum by using balanced inputs. Blackouts are up to 14dB quieter than any other active pickups, while producing more lows, more highs, and more output, the company says.

AHB-3 Blackouts EMTY are available as Mick’s two-humbucker set, or in individual neck and bridge models to mix and match with other Blackouts and Livewires Classic II active pickups. All versions come with mounting hardware, including pots, jack, and a battery clip. For players with active pickups already installed, the EMTY can plug right into the quick connection harness.
