Same amazing 9-volt active pickups as 6-string Blackouts, but built to direct retrofit nearly all 7-string electric guitars, thanks to two cover sizes. Perfect for old school metal, garage, punk, thrash, drop tunings, and other heavy rock styles.
Like 6-string Blackouts, the 7-string versions use balanced inputs with a differential preamp for reduced noise. They’re voiced for heavy rock with greater dynamic range, less scooped mids, and less compression than other active pickups.
7-string Blackouts are available individually or in calibrated neck and bridge sets. Includes 25K pots, stereo jack, battery clip and other mounting hardware. Whether you use the 6-string or the 7-string versions, pair Blackouts with our SFX-04 Twin Tube Mayhem for maximum tonal aggression.
There are two versions of 7-string Blackouts: Phase I and Phase II. Phase I Blackouts are a direct retrofit for most passive 7-string humbuckers, including those by Seymour Duncan and DiMarzio®. Phase II Blackouts are a direct retrofit for the EMG® 707 humbucker.
