The TX set is our direct replacement system for Telecasters™ that will make any player wonder why they didn’t make the switch before now. What distinguishes the EMG TX set is the pure beefy twang that you get from the bridge pickup (RTX), and the complimentary clarity and warmth of the neck pickup (FTX), all with ultra quiet operation. To get this great range of tonal characteristics, we designed both these pickups with Alnico magnets and custom engineered coil size and windings which give a fullness and broader bandwidth that Tele pickups never had before. All of this combines to give you a tone that is incredibly well balanced; rich and sweet on the bottom, and a top end that shimmers with just enough bite. Whether you want that hard-edged blues rock Tele™ sound, or beautiful vintage clean Tele™ twang, you can get it all with this set.
The X series provide increased headroom giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMG's are renowned for. Give it a try and experience why the “X” factor is exciting players all around the world.
The FTX is undoubtedly the best pickup we make. All the elements are in the right proportion; magnet choice, coil size, amount of turns, and good luck have given the FTX the sweetest sound of any EMG. Emmett Chapman has adapted the FT to his latest "Stick" Design because of the beauty of its tone.
The RTX bridge pickup is much larger so its qualities are quite different than the FTX. The RTX has a fatter sound yet still has that familiar bite and clarity for that classic Tele™ tone while also being fully noiseless without the typical hum, buzz or microphonic squeal.
