Mick Thomson EMTY BlackoutsNow Available for 7-String 

Seymour Duncan hasjust announced the release of a 7-string version ofSlipknot guitarist Mick Thompson's EMTY Blackouts activehumbuckers.

The pulverizing tone that defines Slipknot and Mick Thomson isnow available in a 7-string pickup, just like our regularBlackouts.

Mick was already a Blackouts fan before we collaborated on hissignature pickup. "Blackouts have a lot more tone than your typicalactive pickup," he says. "They sound more real. It's a biggersound, with richer harmonics and a wider frequency range."

EMTY Blackouts maintain those qualities, but they're customvoiced to suit Mick's signature low tunings. We've tightened thebass response for better low-end articulation, avoiding the "woofy"sound that can plague dropped tunings. Mick also requested morehigh-end "cut," but without added harshness.

The result: EMTY Blackouts, an active pickup that has become aweapon of choice for metal guitarists worldwide.
