Here is the new EMG Fat 55 humbucker set in a zebra bobbin configuration with tune-o-matic bridge spacing. The Fat 55 humbucker was inspired by the original pickups of the 1950s and 1960s – the original PAF pickups! No longer limited by technology, EMG took that design and added an external preamp that provides the benefit of a low-impedance output! No hum or noise! The Alnico magnets in traditional open coil bobbins deliver fat, warm lows without losing any clarity on the high end. The Fat 55 is capable of sitting back in a blues riff or rising up to the overdriven solo with ease. Staying true to conventional design can bring buzz and hum, which is where the new plug-on preamp comes in. The preamp cleans up all of the output noise but retains the passive character of your tone. This is a passive pickup with all the benefits of active technology, yielding a new level of tonal control.
