    My short EMG 81/Seymour SH6 Shoot-out

    I did a little comparison of these two pickups. I know my performance is a little bit poor and I'm not sure if video has too much compression (I'm trying to find a good render settings for a video).
    after all - maybe it will help

    These both sound really similar, but the SH6 has the 'passive' sound to it. Did you do any post-production on these clips?

    Both sounded good. Liked the 81 better. Really started to pull away in triplet palm mutes and faster sections in general.

    Enjoyed the riffing, and mixes. Nice work.

    I just compress the master buss a little bit.
    In my opinion on palm mutes - SH6 sound better but that's just a matter of taste :P

    The SD's sound tighter, more low-mid focused and drier, but the EMG's just sound bigger, and fit the mix much better, which is why I'll always favour them over passives for recording.
    Recording. Mixing. Mastering. Editing. Re-Amping.
