I did have the chance to compare EMG-81's to the Warpig. The Warpig is a pure EMG-81 killer. The bass is a little less tight than the EMG. That's simply the difference between ceramic and AV. There is more bass in the Warpig tho. It's not muddy, it doesn't choke, it's not clinical, it's dynamic and it's BRUTAL.


Thankīs MAN
thatīs the kind of comparison i am looking for
did you play the emg 85 in the bridge too?


I never had any 85's. I had an explorer with 81's and a Les Paul with an anniversary set 81's. The anniversary set had an engraved chrome cover. it sounded a bit more vintage to my ears. I sold the LP to a mate of mine. It sound quite wicked thru his Marshall valvestate, he even manages to get some U2 out of it. I sold it because my cheapo Mockingbird with the Warpig sounded better than the Gibson LP with EMG's.
