Somnium Guitars announces they're working with EMG Pickups to help them feature new products and offer an interactive experience during this year's show.
EMG will be introducing new signature pickup sets for Megadeth's Dave Ellefson, Anthrax’s Frank Bello, fusion specialist Prashant Aswani and Rancid’s Lars Frederiksen.
Players visiting EMG's booth will be able to hear and instantly compare the new signature series as well as other EMG pickups loaded into Somnium's interchangeable cartridges from their SS-1 style guitar and SB-1 bass.
The NAMM Show is the world’s largest trade-only event for the music products, pro audio and event tech industry. It is held every January in Anaheim, California, at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Here's what's really different about Somnium. We designed a series of guitars with the unique ability to hot-swap any pickup of your choosing in and out at will. Single coil or humbucker, active or passive, neck or bridge or a complete set, switch them around however you like. No need to unplug your guitar; simply pop out one pickup, snap in another and keep on playing, just that easy. Did you ever wish your guitar or bass had that ability? It's not a dream anymore, it's a reality.
Why would you want to change your guitar tone at will? A pickup that's mellow for soulful blues is not going to be bright and twangy for country, or give you a saturated cutting overdrive tone for metal, and so on. Changing pickups is a difficult process and most players will carry around several different guitars just to have a variety of tones. Music has no limits, so why should your guitar?
Somnium has taken the electric guitar to a whole new level. It is an evolution of the instrument, giving you traditional look and feel with the unprecedented ability to easily change your pickups in seconds, anytime you want. This may not be the only guitar you'll ever own, but it will certainly be the most versatile.
