Did this video help you?

Mike Stamper: Hello, everybody! There's a new comparison between these two, with centered mono tracks as some people have asked about that in terms of a better representation of the real pickup sound. You can watch it here: https://youtu.be/FAGoy3oDzXs

Thanks for your comments and support! :D

Tony English: EMG more responsive and clear.

Berkay Akdag: EMG for distortion EMG for clean seymour duncan sucks

Niilo Nevalainen: Put an emg to neck and sd to bridge

Dust Devil: The Duncan has a much more organic sound. U Can hear the strings interacting with the guitar more.That being said the EMG is has much less hiss, has a stronger more controlled playback and i was quite surprised how those high notes in the final few tests with no distortion were enhanced by the E and lost a bit on the Duncan. Great comparison man. Nailed it. I mite add i prefer a Gary Holt over a Clapton any day. \m/

Dave Saenz: Two different sounds for different approaches. I prefer Duncans, they sound more natural and warm. EMG's sound good too, just not as warm. I need to hear part 2.

Aaron W.: I like the EMG better.

William Morton: Put the EMG on the neck and Seymour on the back. 🤔

Ken Havens: emg sound better to my ears.

Eduardo Martinez: I loe the EMG 81 but when I play it on my amp wont sound like this video lol

ST AR-15: Can I get the title for the song(riff) in 1:22??
Sounds so good!

Jesse Tate: Blackouts brighter tighter sounding

etherlords88: I got the similar feel with my EMG setups, little less brighter than blackouts when single but when I paired with 85, the bridge got brighter and 85 delivered nice and warm sound.

Michael Does Stuff: If you want more attack and tighter palm mutes then use the 81. If you like the tone of the Blackouts here then EQ the amp a little more scooped in the mids. Pickups are about changing the character of the distortion and post EQ is about dialing in the final tone.

Christian Vazquez: I'm currently building an HH superstrat and I couldn't choose between EMG 81/85 or the Blackouts. I think I'm gonna go 81 on the bridge and blackout in the neck now. 85 is just really meh so is blackout bridge, but 81 and blackout neck are both awesome so yeah.

Andrew X: Always been a fan of EMG's...until SD made an active pickup. I installed a pair of SD Blackouts in my Jackson RR1 a few years back and that thing sounds BEAST! I have a couple videos of it on my channel if anyone is interested...

SkaDy C: Tabs plz :v

Mr. Hollywood: 81 sounds bigger to me.

Gabriel Vanasse: To be honest, i would have an 81/ahb1n set.

Mike davis: Blackouts for sure! So much more all around tone.
