Seymour Duncan Mick Thomson EMTY Blackout Pickups for 7-String Guitars

The pulverizing tone that defines Slipknot and Mick Thomson is now available in a Seymour Duncan 7-string pickup.

Mick Thomson EMTY Blackout PickupsMick was already a Blackouts fan before we collaborated on his signature pickup. “Blackouts have a lot more tone than your typical active pickup,” he says. “They sound more real. It’s a bigger sound, with richer harmonics and a wider frequency range.”

EMTY Blackouts maintain those qualities, but they’re custom voiced to suit Mick’s signature low tunings.

Seymour Duncan have tightened the bass response for better low-end articulation, avoiding the “woofy” sound that can plague dropped tunings. Mick also requested more high-end “cut,” but without added harshness.

The result: an active pickup that has become a weapon of choice for metal guitarists worldwide.
