Singel coil to my Fender strat.

Post by MichaelRobinson »

Now I dream myself away for a while. I wonder if this is something to have? http://www.thomann.de/se/emg_dg20_david_gilmour.htm. Looking to date up Stratocaster.

Does anyone have any experience with this and want to convey opinion about that?

I had the opportunity to play a strat with the EMG set. Not bad at all !
The two tone buttons are linked to an active electronic card and expand some tonal possibilities, quite nice.

To my ears it seems they like hi-gain, DG used quite a lot of gain while he had the red Strat with the EMG.
Depending on the amps used they sometimes lose the Strat character on clean tones but you have other
possibilities instead with the active electronics. It makes wonders with the neck pickup :thumbsup:

A nice review :

BTW, You may find a less expensive set of DG20 on Epay.

I was asked to add a link here:

https://beginnerguitarhq.com/guitar-pedal-board/ - a comprehensive guide on how to build a guitar pedal board.

I wonder what happened to MR...
