Sound Quality

What's the output level like? Holy shit it's hot!!! this is unbelievable What amps and effects are you using it with? marshall jcm2000 tsl, peavey 5150 Tone - Bassy, middy, muddy, trebly, balanced? this thing oooooozes pure metal. Great mids and super tight bass and treble make this thing a killing machine. Even with the gain fully cranked it is super clear and unlike emg these pickups actually interact beautifully with your guitars natural tone instead of covering it. unfortunatley cleans are hard to work with... it took a good bit of tweaking but at least i have something that works. What style of music do you play? Is this a good match? I play predominantly metal with my current band being a avant jazz/death/hardcore/math metal group kinda like dillinger escape plan. Works perfect for everything I need it to do. For which positions is this pickup (un)suitable? I would not put it in the neck... it would be too muddy.


General Comments

If it was destroyed or stolen, would you buy it again or get something else? I'd buy a new one in a heartbeat

How long have you been playing? What other gear do you own? going on 10 years now and have played through more gear than i plan on going into right now.

What do you love about it? What do you hate?squeezing two batteries in there was a bit tricky but that is the only thing that really irked me.

Did you compare it to other products? Which ones? Why did you choose this one? I have used most emgs duncans and dimarzios as well as more stock pickups than you can shake a stick at... this blows them all away in terms of pure power and clarity.

Anything you wish it had? not really.

Are you satisfied with this pickup or still searching for that sound?

Anything else you'd like to share?
