Arrow [Tech] 7 String Pickup Comparison

Ok, so it's a very common question around here: "What pickup should i buy?" or "What does this pickup sound like?"

I took the liberty to help out a little.

I made these clips by copy/pasting the same drum track over and over again in my multitracker. Then, I simply changed guitars in between without messing with the recording settings. This way, you can hear the differences between the guitar PUs.

All of these guitars are Ibanez 7s (basswood), so they should be too far off from eachother. In the process i used a RG7421XL, RG7620, UV777PBK, RG7620, and a S7420FMTW (yah, i know, it's mahogany). To my surprise, i actually could hear a great deal of difference between the clips.

Check em out:


RG7421XL w/ Blaze 7

RG7620XMAS w/ Blaze Custom ( Leon)
[MEDIA]http://www.sunino.us/Blaze Custom 7 Clip.mp3[/MEDIA]




UV777PBK w/ Evo 7
[MEDIA]http://www.sunino.us/Evo 7 Clip.mp3[/MEDIA]




RG7620BK w/ X2N7
[MEDIA]http://www.sunino.us/X2N 7 Clip.mp3[/MEDIA]




S7420FMTW w/ Stock Ibby 7
[MEDIA]http://www.sunino.us/Stock 7s Clip.mp3[/MEDIA]

I also learned my UV plays about 10x smoother than most of my other guitars.
[plug]The drumtrack is a clip from one of my Abominodium songs. [/plug]

AARGH!!! Damn my cheap computer speakers! Can't hear the differences between the clips. Also, I'm assuming these are all in the bridge position, right?

Oh well, this is a good resource. I'll get my headphones and relisten to them again sometime.

Cool clips! The way it sounded like, the Blaze custom and X2N sounded like "huge" versions of the Blaze and Evo respectively.

I liked the evo7 best, by far... more articulate and more midrange oriented. Gives a far nastier growl then the X2N7 imho!

thanks a ton
coincidentally, i was about to ask which pickup should i pickup for my RG7321. how much of a difference will it create sound wise, since you have a better arsenal of guitars
this clears it all. i have no idea about how to thank a post
but thanks again

Good work Ryan! I really like the sound of the X2N7, and the clip of the RG7421XL with the Blaze is really making me wish I hadn't sold mine, it really is a killer combo.

Thanks guys! Glad to help out

@ James - Yah the X2N7 has a fat assed rythym sound. It really should be in the XL though cause it needs the definition. lol

@ Simon - lol you wish! *caresses the S7*

@ Stretchnutz - Im in A standard for all of my Abominodium songs. ;D Glad to help man

Depends on the music youre gonna be making with it. I like the Evo 7 for my faster more articulate riffage and the X2N7 for beefed out slower powerchord riffage. One must have different tools for different jobs ya know? ;D (half the reason why i have so many different dimarzios too hehe)
