Well a little further down the board there is a thread about the chance for a new guitar for me...

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...?showtopic=4236

And I got it, my God it's nice!

As I stated in the thread, I have never used EMG's before, nor active pick-ups and I have a few questions...

I practice on a Marshal AVT275 amp and use a Marshall GV2 distortion peddle, has anyone any advice on how to get the best and crispest distortion that picks up pinches and sweeps well without the fuzz from stupidly high gain? Can I safely use the distortion peddle on an overdrive channel with an active pick up? I have my practice rig perfectly set up with my Seymours but the added gain from the EMG-81's is making it difficult for me to keep it 'clean and scream'...

Any other advise that comes to mind from people please post!

Off topic.

I think the word you are going for 'peddle' is pedal. I don't mean to be a prude, but it's something you can know for the future smile.gif

About your question I unfortunately can't answer that.

Gosh I feel like a prude.

P.S if that guitar you got is the Camo one, it looks bloody awesome dude! congrats biggrin.gif

If I had a guitar with the active EMG's I'd definitly try the 18 volt mod.
It's supposed to make ALL the difference.

You connect an extra 9V battery in series.

Haha, I'm quite severely dyslexic with slight autism so those aren't the last stupid mistakes you'll see biggrin.gif

Takes me about 20min to do a post, but damn, this built in spell check that firefox has now is awesome!

Yeah, its the Urban Camo I got, looks awesome and has a great vulgar modern look in comparison to my RR1 and KE2.


...As for the 18v mod, already whipped that in, awesome EMG added this versatility for phantom powering! The guitar sounds awesome, I'm just trying to get that clean metal crunch and scream without the fuzz from the overdrive. I think the problem is the EMG's not liking the pedal+overdrive channel as I have no problem achieving this on my 3 guitars with combinations of passive Duncans.
