In 1975, Rob founded EMG pickups. A year later, he came up with the prototype for the world’s first active pickup. Over 44 years, 4 million pickups and 65 employees later, Rob’s impact on pickups, guitar tone & noise reduction, is legendary This is a great conversation because Rob both educates us about pickups and also shares some interesting personal background information. He explains how pickups work, the numerous benefits of active pickups, what prompted him to come up with the idea of not only the active pickup, but how he thought of making it completely solderless.
