History and design

EMG 85 changed the previous EMG 58 pickup in EMG product lineup as a popular rhythm pickups. Technologically, EMG 85 is an active humbucker with bar-shaped Alnico 5 magnet. This yields a warmer and more "natural" tone than most other pickup types. Bar-shaped magnet affects strings uniformly, without irregularities known in more traditional design with separate pole pieces. Alnico 5 magnet also contributes to warmer tone and longer sustain, as opposed to harsher and more distinctive tone of ceramic magnets. Alnico alloys are composed primarily of aluminium, nickel and cobalt (hence the term al-ni-co) with the addition of iron, copper, and sometimes titanium. ... Sustain is a parameter of musical sound in time. ...


As EMG 85 is an active humbucker, its two coils are not just connected in series or parallel with single output. Instead, they have two separate outputs and are summed electronically in the preamp. However, such sealed solution makes it impossible to do coil taps or coil splits. EMG 89 is a recommended pickup with a coil tap/split option. A preamplifier (preamp), as its name suggests, is an amplifier which precedes another amplifier. ... A coil tap is a wiring feature found on some electrical transformers, inductors and coil pickups, all of which are sets of wire coils. ...


As most other modern EMG pickups, EMG 85 has 5-wire quik-connect output, that comes as a 5-pin male connector on a pickup body and a 5-wire cable to connect it. Easy wire color code scheme that is the same for all EMG products simplifies soldering and installation.
