Official Steffen Kummerer EMG artist page

“The EMG 85 is the perfect pickup for a balanced high gain rhythm guitar and in general for heavy sounds. Since more than 10 years I don’t play anything else. I am highly satisfied with the aggressive but controlled crisp tone. This is my sound.” –Steffen Kummerer
