Seymour Duncan Mick Thomson EMTY Blackouts Now Available for 7-String

The pulverizing tone that defines Slipknot and Mick Thomson is now available in a 7-string pickup.

Santa Barbara, CA (July 18, 2012) – The pulverizing tone that defines Slipknot and Mick Thomson is now available in a 7-string pickup, just like Seymour Duncan's regular Blackouts.

“Blackouts have a lot more tone than your typical active pickup,” Thomson says. “They sound more real. It’s a bigger sound, with richer harmonics and a wider frequency range.”

EMTY Blackouts maintain those qualities, but they’re custom voiced to suit Mick’s signature low tunings. We’ve tightened the bass response for better low-end articulation, avoiding the “woofy” sound that can plague dropped tunings. Mick also requested more high-end “cut,” but without added harshness.

Source Audio nicknamed the new ZIO pedal “the Better Box,” which is a fair summation of what this thing will do for your tone. Purists may rant endlessly about the virtues of plugging straight into an amp. But many legendary players understood that a little extra “hot” between guitar and amp can add up to magic. From Jimmy Page’s Echoplex preamp to Brian May’s Rangemaster to Angus Young’s Schaffer-Vega wireless system, a lot of signature sounds have been shaped with a little extra kick—and often from unexpected sources that are something other than simple boosts. Source Audio’s first all-analog pedal is more than a conventional booster, too. And, to some degree, it celebrates these alternate paths to boosting tone.
