Members mooseeka Posted June 22, 2010 Members Share Posted June 22, 2010 I tried to review the damn things on HC review section, but I'm so not digging the new HC setup, it woud'nt allow me, or maybe I was doing something wrong..but anyway, here are my quick impressions I purchased the new slash bridge + duncanYJM neck., installed both in the same guitar..I did not think they would balance well, but they actually did by luck! except Slash's is brighter, which I load it with a resistor to tame the treble response on that one alone.to better balance.!!...now just an FYI, I have reviewed and tried almost every electric pickup by dimarzio, and duncan pickups for years so I have a good idea;) 1-Duncan YJM NECK:well, I can tell the DC resistance is much less from the HS3 the second I played it.. I swapped this with the dimarzio HS3 just so I know right away what changed in the same guitar/position. Its a bit louder,not by much. Clean channel definitely sounds better than HS3!! but then again its not what this "fury" is for, althu, its good to have it in reserve. Distorted..., , its less bassy and less focused, and less mids for sure. its more open, with some crazy sensitivity and dynamics, honestly you would sound like yngwie even if you dont want to when doing vibrato..lol...and I think thats what he was after..more dynamics.... I always liked HS3 for its dynamics and tone, but this has more of it, HOWEVER..not sure if I dig the tone as much..it sounds somehow thinner, milder with less attack, especially on the high strings and missing some of the sharp edge byte and the drive that HS3 has, however its more open...with better lows which is great cause HS3 always suffered there for being muddy..Also this has a more mainstream fender vibe which is great its a more mild version with more dynamics, I really like it, but doesnt mean I would choose it over the great HS3 cause it has qualities that I cant find in the new fury., so honestly..in a nutshell,, I like this as much as the HS3, they both have their pros and cons, will keep both, 2-SLASH bridge, now I installed this instead of my AlnicoII along with the "fury"neck in a my highway one strat. WOW in your face slash sound! was crazy, and it still sounded almost like slashes les paul, so I bet you will be there 100% when installed in a Les paul, its got that same rude crunch that Slash has, make no mistake about it! very different than that other PAF "brown" sound crunch, very bluesy and sounds HUGE when playing rythem, almost sounds you have a slide bar when you start bending chords.., really like it..also has alot of harmonics, it doesnt sound like the Alinco II, its brighter and better, tad less bass..I like it MUCH better hope this was helpful Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
