Seymour Duncan Announces Mick Thomson EMTY Blackouts for 7-String

August 6, 2012
imgThe pulverizing tone that defines Slipknot and Mick Thomson is now available in a 7-string pickup.

Mick was already a Blackouts fan before collaborating with Seymour Duncan 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. We've 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: EMTY Blackouts, an active pickup that has become a weapon of choice for metal guitarists worldwide.
