    Hello
    I play metal for over 15 years.
    I played on guitars with pickups (middle position), DiMarzio and Seymour Duncan and all are very good microphones.
    but since I'm on EMG, I have a more airy, straighter, more accurate and finer grain tighten!
    SA gives it the shine and softness of light and crunch sounds really good and it always made of vélocitées in EMG which allows great flexibility of the right hand (for right handed).

    for the price, the EMG SA is a good mic added to this config MSM, already equipped with:
    81 and 85
    81 and 89

    Good evening all guitarists,

    ************************************************** ************************************
    I have an EMG 85 in position and an EMG SA Acute position mdium serious, all mounted on a Fender Stratocaster Japan (Reissue 60) rosewood handle.
    For EMG SA I clean a crystal-clear sound trs kind Fender 60s, position 2 and 4 are fabulous for Arpges (hello Slows).
    In saturated fat and the sound is clean with a Fender Vintage Grain, but more powerful than Fender pickups.

    NB: The sound of the micro EMG SA position is saturated serious Cut breath so it is extraordinary, his type was a David Gilmour, Santana and Jimi Hendrix Isle of Wight concert in 1970.
    With EMG......

    With EMG SA serious position we can go far with trs, we enter the Quatrime Psychdlique Dimension. (Provided you have a good amp like lamps and super pramp SansAmp PSA 1,
    Marshall JMP 1, and a good multi-effects)

    IDAL is to couple an EMG 85 in acute position, EMG SA + 2, with this config you get all the modern sounds of guitars.

    I have 2 years of these two mics on my jackson in neck and middle position.
    I must say it is well! the clean sound is stunning, at once bold and crystal, and much slamming (micro active ^ ^)
    he accepts the blues very well, he excels himself. A little crunch and it's up!
    by attention to his side against fat, it loses much more accurate when you push a little saturation, it has its charm but it is not to do solos. Neck pickup is a pure ^ ^
    I recommend to anyone looking for a simple microphone to test this one before making a choice) you will love

    Me to have them in position for 1 year at my grave and medium Squier Stratocaster.
    They are mounted on the kit Steve Lukather (with 85 in high) and SA are modified poue more powers.
    I love this simple little microphones because they can balance the sauce when you want to saturate. In plutt clean they sound bluesy rock for the serious and the middle.
    To me they are much better than the traditional SA.

    With a good head lamps, has been ... however, is sometimes a little soft in some configuration, such distortion in the neck position ... o the new version of the SAV Lukather with studs apparent. It has more attack and punch ....

    - I use the EMG-SA, in the middle and round, recently.
    - Without a doubt, the clear sound beautiful, if not in crunch / od / fuzz / distortion / etc also not bad.
    - I have not tried other mics simple.
    - Report qualitprix, 104 for 2 new EMG-SA was worth the shot (thanks to the dollar exchange rate and postage included biensr).
    - I do it again this choice, but I'd like to know what gives the SD Livewire Classic and Hot.

    Used for ten years = good electrical, excellent sound, reliable, and more probs with acute loss of long cables!
    I tried all but the active EMG (I use SA, 81.85 and 89) are above the rest!
    In addition, SAV = IS REMARKABLE Nouma I live, no local dealer, I told them commandbr /> United States as a replacement knob mine "crachottait" after 10 years of loyal service. ..
    APRS 8 days, I got the knob gratos with emg unt SHIRT!!
    CLASS !!!!!!!!

    - Used four years (in micro middle and neck position)
    - Like other EMG high output, precision, sustain increased because of the small and micro magntisme the lack of breath.
    - With this micro was good clean sounds either agree or arpges, ditto for the crunch sounds. As against it does not sound great on most saturated but we can not have it either
    - This Systm sheets to the microphone without any dconnecter dssouder is really great pens I used more than once.
    - Over time I realized that I prfrais largely the behavior of passive pickups
  • EMG's fattest single coil.

    EMG is the market leader when it comes to active pickups. They also sell their models in the size of single coils too for people who have really long signal chains or just want the huge output and tone of an active pickup in the size of a single coil. With EMG their modern design give you a modern sound. Guitarist are pretty traditional but EMG's are starting to become tradition now with their unique approach to pickups. With EMG pickups they use a rail magnet that is pretty weak. With this weak rail magnet you get two advantages. It does not produce must magnetic drag on the strings. This drag would lower your sustain and can even pull your notes out of tune if your magnet is too......

    EMG is the market leader when it comes to active pickups.

With EMG their modern design give you a modern sound. Guitarist are pretty traditional but EMG's are starting to become tradition now with their unique approach to pickups. With EMG pickups they use a rail magnet that is pretty weak. With this weak rail magnet you get two advantages. It does not produce must magnetic drag on the strings. This drag would lower your sustain and can even pull your notes out of tune if your magnet is too powerful. With the long rail magnet there is no dead zones in the magnetic field. On some pickups if you bend the string away from the pole piece you may get a slight loss in signal because the string is farther away from the magnet. Thanks to the active preamp you do not have to load the pickup with super powerful magnets to get the tone but since the preamp is active you will need to wire it up with a at least one 9v battery to power the whole system. The SA has a much thicker tone than the EMG S does. You can say if the S is an 81 the SA is an 85. The 85 is known to be the fatter cousin of the 81 and this relationship is similar. Because this pickup has a fatter tone it sounds less of a single coil than the S does. The S has a brighter tone like the 81 but also like a single coil. The SA is much fatter in tone and has more beef to it. You can run this pickup and just about any position. In the bridge it will give you a great beefy tone and in the neck you will get super smooth high gain leads. If you are looking for a active signle coil with fat tone the EMG SA is one of the fattest.

    EMG SAPublished on 06/09/11 at 09:07
    I Installed this pickup in the neck position of an ESP SC6 which has an alder body, maple neck, ebony fret board, and tune-o-matic bridge. My main amp is a framus cobra 100 watt tube amp and I sometimes use a peavey 5150 or hughes & kettner triamp. I play a mixture of metal, prog rock, and spacey clean music.

    This pickup is an unsung hero in the EMG line. Everyone raves about the 81/85 for metal but honestly after I did some searching with passives I removed and sold all my EMG pickups with the exception of the SA. This pickup sounds great and does not have that stiff hard sound like their humbuckers nor is it sterile in any way. Think of the things you like about single coils all the......

    This pickup is an unsung hero in the EMG line. Everyone raves about the 81/85 for metal but honestly after I did some searching with passives I removed and sold all my EMG pickups with the exception of the SA. This pickup sounds great and does not have that stiff hard sound like their humbuckers nor is it sterile in any way. Think of the things you like about single coils all the clarity, sparkle, and snap is there but without the noise and with an increased output. The EQ curve seems to be mid-scooped and although it's not the greatest for neck pickup lead work it is exactly what I like for clean tones. This also responds much better to playing dynamics thn the other EMGs and actually cleans up well by rolling the volume knob back. My only beef with the SA is that it is hard to work into a guitar that has passive pickups in the other positions since you have to use the EMG pots (25k) and the output is a little high to match with low-medium output humbuckers. Other than that it is a great sounding single coil.

    I was playing my guitar in a shop one day and this traditional blues guy walked up really excited to see what pickup I was using. Needless to say he was shocked when he saw it was an active EMG. I think David Gilmour uses these and he can do no wrong tone wise.
