Re: Tone Zone vs. EMG 85
I have an 85 in the bridge of my mahogany S470DXQM and it totally slays all
Especially for metal (duh) Bodom, Shadows Fall, etc, its covered.
As far as cutting, oh it cuts, it cuts plenty...
Crunch makes me think passive pups for some reason, but anyhow, the 85 definately sounds full, but not exactly fat. EMGs are all about that "tight power". As far as the neck goes, I use the 89, which can be used in either hum or single mode, and that in itself is pricelss. In summation, great tones from each, and a very unconventional EMG setup.
