The EMG TX Set is a new take on the classic Telecasters™ pickup. Don't let the looks fool you, the TX Set gives you all the twang and punch you'd expect with incredible clarity and definition with no hum. The bridge pickup (RTX) gives players that classic chime without the 'ice pick' and a rich low end. When overdriven, this guitar pickup screams with incredible sustain and edge. The neck pickup (FT) has everything you want from a front single coil: clarity, warmth, and rich harmonic content that is perfectly matched to the back pickup.
The TX Set uses Alnico magnets with custom engineered coils, windings and our X preamp to give your sound fullness and a tone that bridges the gap between passive and active. The EMG TX Set covers rock, country, blues, fusion, R&B... and with our solderless wiring system, it's easy to install on your own.
The X series preamp gives the pickup a more dynamic range along with increased headroom while keeping the more traditional string-to-string balance. X series pickups also come with an Active Tone Control (VLPF) designed to roll-off (attenuate) high frequencies, similar to a typical passive tone control. The result is a noiseless single coil guitar pickup with a classic EMG sound that bridges the gap between active and passive.
