DP184 The Chopper

The Chopper™ is the louder, punchier brother of the Fast Track 1™. More power is concentrated in the mids and low end for a bigger sound with more crunch. It shares the same side-by-side coils and twin-blade construction as the Fast Track 1™, so there are no misaligned poles or string-pull problems. We originally designed it as a bridge pickup to combine with The Cruiser™ and Fast Track 1™, but it’s also a good neck pickup when you’ve got a hot humbucker in the bridge position.Recommended For: All positions.

Tech Talk: Excellent choice to fatten tone and increase power of Strat bridge position. Can be part of calibrated set with 2 Fast Track 1™'s or Cruiser™ (DP187) neck and Fast Track 1™ (middle).

$95.00
IN

DP187 Cruiser black

for strats all positions, black-The obvious question about the Cruiser™ is "How real is the sound?" Our feeling is that the unwound strings (E, B and G) are very close, and the wound strings (D, A and low E) are a little fatter-sounding than a true single-coil. This is really effective for getting big-sounding chords, because high and low strings sound more spread out from each other. Having a total magnet pull that's about 40% less than standard single-coils also means the Cruiser™ can be adjusted much closer to the strings for more power than stock pickups can achieve. $95.00
IN

DP186 Cruiser Black

If you’re a serious traditional Strat® player, you probably won’t want to know about pickups with side - by - side coils. But if you’re the player who’s up for something more modern with no 60-cycle hum, string drop-outs or sustain-killing magnet pull, we designed The Cruiser® for you. Harmonic overtones are right where you expect them to be from a "true" single-coil, and the mid-range is open and vocal-sounding. It’s hotter than the traditional single-coil, and the bass strings have a bit more chunk; this is an excellent pickup to combine with medium-output humbuckers, and it maintains its tonal identity with high-gain amps and multiple effects. $95.00
IN

DP181 Fast Track-1

for strats, black-For any situation where single-coil sound with higher power and hum-cancellation is required. Can be used in any position in a standard Strat setup. Also combines with bridge humbuckers such as PAF®, PAF Pro®, Fred®, Air Classic™, Air Zone™, Norton®, and Tone Zone®. $95.00
IN

DP401 Virtual Vintage

It’s a rare and fortunate player who’s had the opportunity to play a great 50s or early 60s Strat®. That’s the player we had in mind with the Virtual Vintage® 2.1, because that’s the player who really knows if a pickup measures up to vintage standards. In every way, the DP401 will stand the comparison. It even has resistance, impedance and inductance specs like the best 50s pickups, and it was designed to work with the original 250K controls. Obviously we don’t expect a player to take the original pickups out of a 50s guitar, but—if you’ve got a great Strat® from any era and want to experience the real deal (with no noise and less string pull, from special Alnico 2 magnets)—the Virtual Vintage¨ 2.1 is your pickup.Recommended for all positions.

Tech Talk: We feel very strongly that this pickup reproduces the sound and feel of the best single-coils from the 1950s, so we've replaced the original Virtual Vintage® Standard (DP401) with the 2.1. At the same distance from the strings as you'd normally adjust a pickup with full-strength Alnico 5 magnets, the 2.1 has the same power as a pickup from the 50s. However, because we're using AL 2 magnets with about 40% less pull, you can increase the power by adjusting the 2.1 closer to the strings without affecting string vibration or intonation. Black

IN

DP402 Virtual Vintage Blues

blk ;What do you need in order to play blues with a Strat®? The Virtual Vintage® Blues has more power and warmth than a typical single-coil. You can really hear these qualities when you’re playing the Virtual Vintage® 2.1. It withstands hard picking and opens up when you’re playing with an overdriven amp. Instead of shrinking away, the sound jumps out of the speakers. These qualities are really useful for getting a fat neck position sound, but they’re outstanding for the bridge position—particularly if you have a thin-sounding guitar or use light-gauge strings. It’s a tough-sounding bridge pickup with warmer guitars, and makes a good neck and middle choice to match with a full-size bridge humbucker. As the rest of the Virtual Vintage® family, it’s dead quiet; there’s practically no hum at all.

Recommended For: All positions. Black

$95.00
IN

DP381 Fast Track-T

blk ;The Fast Track T™ is hotter than most single-coil Tele® bridge pickups, but it has way more twang and snap than a humbucking pickup ought to have. We pulled this trick off by combining patented dual-resonance coils (less DC resistance than a standard Tele¨ single-coil) with twin-blade poles for less string-pull than standard rod magnets. It all means more sustain, cleaner highs and tighter bass. It may not look like a traditional Tele¨ bridge pickup, but if outstanding hum-free performance is the goal, the Fast Track T™ is a clear winner.

Recommended For: Standard Tele bridge position.

Tech Talk: Different control resistance values will yield a wide range of tones with the Fast Track 2™. 250K controls (the usual value on most Teles) will produce a fairly warm sound without much high-end bite: a 500K volume and 1 Megohm tone will be very twangy. 500K volume and 250K tone produce a more balanced tone.

$95.00
IN

DP151 PAF PRO

The PAF Pro® was created when chops-intensive playing was first starting to happen, and high-gain amps and rack systems were becoming popular. A pickup was needed that combined a lot of presence and “cut” with an open-sounding PAF® vibe. The transparency of its sound lets the PAF Pro® slice through heavy processing, where darker-sounding pickups get lost in the mud of the effects chain. Low notes have both snap and chunk, and there is a spike in the mid-range that gives the pickup a subtle “aw” vowel sound, like a wah-wah pedal stopped in the middle. Treble response is tweaked to produce highs that stand out without getting brittle. The PAF Pro® makes an outstanding neck pickup in almost any guitar, and it’s an exceptional bridge pickup when high output isn't required.Click here for details. Black $95.00  IN

DP213 PAF JOE

The PAF Joe is the new neck pickup that DiMarzio(r) developed for Joe Satriani. Joe wanted a neck position humbucker that combines the best qualities of the DiMarzio PAF Pro(r) with those of a late '50s Gibson humbucker. Joe described this tone as being "tubular". Through the use of Virtual Vintage(R) technology, clear-sounding low frequencies are blended with warm-sounding mids and high frequencies, which makes the PAF Joe equally good for chords and single notes. It was first used by Joe throughout the 2003 G3 tour.

DP158 Evolution Humbucker

neck.Created for Steve Vai.

Designed for maximum impact and power—to get a tight, aggressive, loud sound. It incorporates a patented dual-resonance coil configuration that senses more harmonic overtones than ordinary humbuckers. Works in almost all solidbodies and most semi-hollowbodies as well. Though specifically created for Steve Vai's Ibanez Jems, it can add a lot of punch to Les Paul and similar set-neck guitars. Makes the lowest notes jump out of the amp, and feedback occurs easily with a wide range of harmonic overtones.Black

$99.00
IN

DP159 Evolution Humbucker

The Evolution® neck and bridge humbuckers are the result of two years of research to come up with the right sound for a very demanding player: Steve Vai and his Ibanez® Jems. Both pickups are designed for maximum impact and power. The neck pickup is fat, punchy and loud. The bridge pickup is tight, aggressive and louder. Both pickups have our patented dual-resonance configuration to reproduce more harmonic overtones than conventional humbuckers. Evolution® pickups are not polite-sounding, and they're not for the inexperienced, but-if you've got the chops and a hot amp-your sound will burn. The Evolution® pickups were originally designed with live gigs in mind, but they have so much presence and definition that they're great recording pickups, too; they slice right through even the densest mix.

Recommended For: Bridge position in solid body guitars. Black

EMG

Visit the EMG Website here

EMG-81

Active humbucker- The EMG-81 is a high output pickup designed especially for the lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you're playing power rock and roll, or overdriving your amp, there's a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. Specs
IN

EMG-85

Active humbucker- Although the EMG-85 has more measurable output than the 81, its frequency response and string interface are different. The 85 uses two Alnico magnet loaded coils with a wide aperture to maintain a beefy lowend and a fatter top end. Because of a more natural tone, it works great as a rhythm and blues pickup because it has loads of output but isn't muddy. Itís a perfect choice as a rhythm pickup in combination with an 81 in the bridge, which is the same pickup combination used by Zakk Wylde. Specs

IN

EMG-707

Active 7-string humbucker- The pickup is housed in our 35 Extended bass housing, so it's not a direct replacement for a humbucking pickup. The 707 is a dual coil pickup with Alnico Poles similar to the 85, with the same amount of output.Specs

IN

EMG-SV

Vintage single pkp; active- Using the same original string interface (staggered Alnico 5 pole pieces), the SV is tone modeled after the 1959 Strat with that familiar peaky response at around 3000 Hz giving it that "plucky" percussive attack. Because it's truly a marriage of vintage design and state of the art electronics, it has a much smoother, less scratchy distortion sound, and more output. Specs

IN

EMG-SA

Vintage single pkp; active- The EMG-SA pickup combines the attributes of the early Strat* sound but with an added midrange response and higher output, giving it "bell-like" ringing harmonics and increased sustain. One single Alnico bar magnet delivers classic overdrive with a smooth midrange distortion, while still retaining the familiar high-end of a single-coil pickup. These characteristics provide greater versatility than what is normally found in single-coil pickups. Specs

IN

EMG-CET

Tele set; active- This two-pickup system is geared toward the high end with less emphasis on the mids. The EMG-TC features a bright, clear, penetrating high end that's as naturally bright as we could design it without losing the harmonic sweetness typical of EMG designs. All in all, it's a tight, bright, aggressive sound.Specs

IN

KFK

Kerry King matched set; active- Signature model The combination of the EMG-81 and EMG-85 along with the PA2 (20db gain booster) delivers maximum distortion for Kerry and Slayer's bone crushing tones. This is his exact configuration used for live and studio action.Specs

IN

Select humbucker

SEHG Passive- The EMG-SEHG is designed for tone. Both power and cut-through tone are available. The SEHG is fully shielded and potted to give you quiet performance and the output of a full-blown humbucker.Specs

IN

Select single SES

for strats; passive- The EMG-SES is designed to give your guitar a traditional single-coil sound. The SES uses a unique dual-coil design to reduce hum and buzz with a dual-blade design. Retrofits easily into most guitars with Strat-style routing.Specs

IN

Select P

for p-basses;passive- Clarity and punchiness make the EMG-SEP a great choice for the bassist going for the look and sound of the new bass guitar revolution. This dual coil bass pickup fits in standard guitar humbucking routing.Specs

IN

Select J

for j-basses; passive- The SEJ model offers highs and lows available only from equalization. For fretted or fretless, the SEJ has a touch of the traditional tone but with improved clarity and power.Specs
IN

SPC

Active presence control module- often called the fat control. The original intent of the SPC was to turn the tone of a single-coil pickup into a dual-coil. This is accomplished by boosting the gain in a broad mid-band fashion and reducing the highs. The result is a fatter, louder tone from any single coil pickup, but you can also use it on a humbucking to give you a high output.

Specs

      OUT

EXG

Active guitar expander module- The frequency response of the EXG is similar to normal guitar amp equalization. The lows and highs are boosted while the midrange is dipped out. The EXG is great for creating a fuller tone that doesn't get muddy, while keeping it clean and clear, letting your guitar stand out in the mix.Specs

IN

PA2

Active preamp booster module- a straight booster preamplifier mounted on a minitoggle switch. Perfect if you want to just plain overdrive the input of your amp for distortion. It has a trim pot so you can preset the amount of boost up to an additional 20 dB. The PA2 will also work with passive pickups.Specs

IN

EMG-CEP

Active p-bass set- uses short, squat coils that have very little resistance and plenty of inductance. Because the coils are not in series like the passive types, there's about twice as much low end as a passive pickup. Ceramic magnets are used to add clarity. Countless pros use it because they find it has a natural presence, powerful lows, punchy midrange, and superior definition.Specs

IN

EMG-CEPJ

Active pj bass set- Combining the EMG-P and a single EMG-LJ unit in a complete assembly, the EMG-PJ gives you improved flexibility for new dimensions of sound. The EMG-P has a full complement of low register power and The EMG-LJ provides a full midrange and extended high frequency response for a well defined attack.Specs

IN

AJ93

Active acoustic guitar pkp system- A stand-alone pickup/preamp system includes the AT93 Pickup, respectively, along with a custom preamp that's mounted directly to EMG's own UltraJak. This specially designed preamp has a low-frequency rolloff at 18dB per octave to remove the "boom" from your acoustic guitar and includes a subtle low mid-range contour that enhances the overall tone. The result is great acoustic tone, that's natural and open. Have it installed properly by us! Specs

Blackout AHB-1 (matched set)

The "other" USA-made active humbuckers use unbalanced inputs in a differential preamp. The problem is, an unbalanced differential preamp is not very effective at cancelling hum. Our engineers figured out how to capture the tone that players want in an active design, but using balanced inputs. The result is 12dB to 14dB less noise, plus more lows, more highs, and more output. Simply put, Blackouts have more tone than other active pickups . more details   OUT

DVT Control One

Toss out those useless,muddy sounding tone controls in your guitar! With the Dual Voice Tone Control you get two,different filtered tones(one at each end of the pot's rotation),as well as a middle position with de-emphasized presence.You can then push down on the pot and effectively take the control out of the circuit path,giving you some upper end boost. We use specially selected mil-spec precision tone caps that ensure no-drift performance

and pinch off just the right amount of frequencies. The DVT works in any guitar or bass and especially recommended for Stratocasters,Telecasters,Ibanez as well as most basses with "lacklustre" passive tone controls.If you're a metal guitarist,the DVT makes for a dramatic improvement in your guitar's tone control,especially if your "normal" playing mode involves playing with distortion.Comes with extra caps for experimenting

 

 

 IN

DVT Control Two

This is a different version of the DVT that works like this: pull up on the switch pot and you get one voied tone,specially tapered so the control responds more accurately thru it's rotation(there is no neutral centre position).Push the switchpot knob down and you'll

get a differently voiced tone,again,with a more accurate taper.

There is no full bypass on this version so it'll still act like a conventional control when it's fully returned to "off".

Suitable for all guitars & basses equipped with passive(non active)pickups & equipped with tone control values from 250k to 500k

 

 IN

Dual Blend Tone A

This control again offers two differently voiced tones(one at each end of the pots rotation)but instead has a neutral centre "detent" you can feel,so you can set it quickly'Great for bass guitars as well as guitars with two separate tone controls.We include four additional precision caps so you can mod one control for the neck pickup and mod the bridge pickup, so you can get FOUR DIFFERENT tone responses(two for each pickup)by using a pair of these.Suitable for all guitars & basses equipped with passive(non active)pickups and equipped with tone control values from 250k to 500k

Dual Tone Blend B

A specially designed version of our Dual Blend Tone Control,for guitars equipped with LO-IMPEDANCE pickups AND LO-IMPEDANCE volume & tone controls(50k value or less)like those used with EMG pickupss.Availability: TBA

 

Custom switches

WE assemble custom switching arrays that are bonded together,making it easier to fit inside tight spaces.The most popular is the triple mini-switch array which fits into the strat's pkp switch slot with just three closely drilled holes to accomodate the array. We can assemble an array for you with any combination of mini-switches including the hard-to-find middle position On/On/On three-way types.Also available with pre-wired harness so you can easily splice & solder your existing wiring into the harness.

 

Series Spkr Cable

Unlike those other "molded" Y-chords that are essentially disposable,ours aren't. We assemble all our own "y" cables ,in house,in our own shop,using heavy duty, metal, premium quality components by Neutrik and Switchcraft.The majority of Y cables

which are designed for low-level signals, are unsuitable for amp-to-speaker(power signals)so we came up with our own,special application versions with heavy gauge speaker wire to handle these higher amplified levels.Our SERIES cable lets you use two separate cabinets ,together for a combined impedance load like:

when you need to connect a pair of 4 ohm cabinets together to equal EIGHT ohms or, when you need a pair of 8 ohm cabinets to equal 16 ohms. Our SERIES cable is very useful with many amps that only offer a single 8 or 16 ohm jack on the back panel.

All connectors are heatshrinked for stran relief and added reliability.All connectors are labelled for goof-proof use.

IN

Parallel Spkr Cable

Looks the the same as our SERIES cable but, wired in parallel. If you have an amp head that only has a single output jack or if you have a pair of cabinets that are equipped with a single spkr jack on their back panel(and you're not keen on installing more jacks)then you would need this cable.If you need a pair of 8 ohm cabinets to equal a total of 4 ohms,or if you need a pair of 16 ohm speaker cabinets to total 8 ohm for your amp,this is the one to get.

 

IN

T-R-S Cable

Our T-R-S (tip-ring-sleeve) is built for guitars that feature both,magnetic and piezo pickups that need to have their signals split and connected to separate amps,mixers,D.I.s or processors.Available from our shop with a TRS male or female(guitar end)to two separate male(or female)output connectors.

Virtuoso Premium Instrument Cleaner and Polish

Both the Virtuoso Premium Polish and Virtuoso Premium Cleaner use a chemical reaction to break down residues. We do not use abrasives, which can harm the original finish of your instruments. Virtuoso Premium Polish and Virtuoso Premium Cleaner are two superior musical instrument care products that were especially developed for vintage guitars and other musical instruments. Vintage instruments with nitrocellulose lacquer finishes require more care and attention than modern polyurethane finishes that are being produced today. The polish and cleaner are different than any other polish or cleaner that you may have used with your musical instruments in the past. Check out just some of the comments from actual users here.

Virtuoso Polish

If your musical instrument is already clean, we suggest you use Virtuoso Premium Polish. In addition to offering your instrument a high luster, fingerprint resistant finish, the Virtuoso Premium Polish also provides a very high degree of UV protection. Virtuoso Premium Polish is more of a protection product. During an application the polish seals your finish with a strong glaze that helps slow down the oxidation of your finish and protect the color of the wood or the pigment in the painted or stained finish with an inherent UV filter. This will help your musical instrument look new longer or help keep your vintage musical instrument from fading. This glaze is also fingerprint resistant, allowing you to go weeks or months without another application. Simply get a clean cloth and wipe your instrument to restore the brilliant luster.
