Santa Rosa, CA (March 21, 2008) EMG is now shipping the EMG-81TW, the company’s single/dual coil switchable version of the EMG-81.

 

The EMG-81 has been a constant in the heavy metal community for more than three decades. The new version is a 9-volt active guitar pickup with dual active preamps that allow for higher gain and more output in either mode. You don’t have to sacrifice tonal response or dynamic feel – the EMG-81TW operates in a virtually noiseless environment.

While single coil mode kicks in a ceramic loaded bar, dual coil mode consists of two ceramic loaded coils opposite each other to create a pickup similar to the EMG-81. Other new features are push/pull volume/tone controls enabling players to switch from the clarity of a single coil to the fullness of a humbucker.

In addition, the new EMG-81TW can be hooked up to several of the company’s accessories, such as the SPC Presence Control, EXG Expander or PA2 Preamp Booster. The setup includes EMG’s exclusive Quik-Connect cable, prewired push/pull volume/tone set, output jack, battery clip set, screws and springs.

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.
