    Before moving to (mostly) passives, I had been a die hard EMG 81/85 devotee. On a whim I tried the 57 when it was ‘relatively’ new and found that I much preferred it to the 81 and/or the 85. I totally get Rex Rocker’s point that the 57 it is still unmistakably an EMG. But my experience was more noticeable improvement in string separation and articulation with better overall tonal balance. I see enough 57s and 66s cropping up gently used on Reverb that it may be worth a try since you know you already like what the 81 is doing for you. (I actually have a couple 57s on my parts shelf that I kept after moving to passives ‘just in case’...)
