Anyone know the dofference between the x and xh? I haven't seen any clips of the xh pickups. Thanks
X means the X-type pre-amp. Can't remember what H means, but the X is a substantial change.
Depends on context. The "X" denotes the newer, supposedly "more passive" sounding preamp.
In EMG talk, an "H" means a few different things. Either it's a regular humbucker housing for the extended line, their single coil in humbucker sized housing, or if followed by a number their range of passive pickups.
I'm guessing you mean the "HX" pickup specifically? That would be similar to their SX single coils.
Yes, like the emg 85xh. I have no idea how it dffers from the 85x.
There's no such thing as an "85XH", there's the 85-7XH, where the "H" means it's in a more standard humbucker housing with "legs" vs. the older bass style soapbars housings.
Yes, that was a typo. Perfect, that's what I was looking for!
FWIW I have the 85X and had the 89X in a couple of my guitars. It's my 2nd favorte EMG pickup.
H is covered but passive mount sized (I.e will fit in open humbcker routs on pickguards etc) any variant that doesn't have the H will be normal active mount sized.
Unless we are talking about the specific EMG H and HA models which are just single coils in humbcker housings. H is ceramic and HA is Alnico
Is your favorite the 57, the Hetfield, os somthing else?
I really wish EMG would make an H-8XH.
Regular ol' 81.
