EMG EMG-ZW Zakk Wylde 81/85 Humbucker Set
As guitarist for Ozzy Osborne and his own group Black Label Society, Zakk Wylde stands as one of the most copied guitarists of the heavy metal genre. His customized EMG ZW 81/85 humbucker pickup set may have been made with the metal heads in mind, but these pickups are also ideal for heavy rock music, too. The EMG-81 provides a fat and aggressive tone ideal for long-sustaining lead work. The EMG-85, on the other hand, offers a more beefy low end and more natural tone, making it ideal for rhythmic riffs. The humbuckers’ Quik-connect cables allow players to forgo the often-tedious soldering process, and install them in an instant.
