Overload with the Juggs installed. So this is going to be an ongoing thing for me with this overload rhea 8. If you just want to hear the clips then the link is here: https://soundcloud.com/skwisgaar-sandervaal/sets/overload-rea-8-pickup-shootout I've got some cash right now and wanted to finally explore some pickup options for 8 strings since there's not really a lot of in-depth demos exploring the versatility of the pickup. I tried to make these clips with as few variables as possible (same guitar, same amp sim/cab sim, same settings, no post production, no drums, the sound is going straight from my kemper into my scarlett 2i4 and then to studio one 3 pro edition). If you want to learn more, I explain the profile used etc. in the playlist description on soundcloud. I tried to encapsulate some different styles like jazzy cleans, fingerpicked cleans, meshuggah esque riffs, sludgy stoner rock esque riffs, death metal esque riffs, devin townsend style riffs to test chord clarity (riffs use extended chords involving 7th/8th string ), etc. This is by no means exhaustive or super precise but it will give you a good feel for the pickups and how they sound in this guitar (whether they will sound similar for your rig is of course, up to you). List of pickups that I've tried in here so far/Sound Overview: BKP Aftermath bridge (no demos of this one, sold it to buy C-pig)- Very tight, clanky/metallic sounding, takes gain very well, very clear/percussive but I hated it. Actually pretty good for 80s hair metal tones like Ratt though.. BKP Ceramic Warpig bridge/Cold Sweat neck-The C-pig destroys/roars under gain, it's a savage pickup, but also pretty versatile, good clarity, takes gain very well, my only complaint was it felt a bit bright in the high end on this guitar. The Cold Sweat is awesome, it's very clear, has a rounder high end so it doesn't get icepicky, and is oh so amazing for high gain leads/shredding. Duncan Omega (bridge only) Probably my favorite pickup so far, it's tight, it snarls under gain in a unique sounding way, takes gain extremely well, very clear on the lower strings, the high end is less than the C-pig in this guitar and overall it's a super balanced pickup Duncan Pegasus (bridge only)-A more polite version of the Omega basically. It's super versatile, takes gain very well, great clarity, but lacks the snarl of the Omega (that ceramic magnet really makes a difference). A little bigger sounding than the Omega but not huuuge like the C-Pig or Juggs. BKP Juggernauts (bridge and neck)- I've wanted to try these for years. Great clarity on the low end, pretty tight, takes gain very well, relatively versatile but they have a distinct sound that you either love or hate. I like the low/low-mid bump they have, it gives them a nice chug sound. Don't have much to say about the neck pickup because I'm in love with the Cold Sweat. Pickups I'm still testing/waiting on: Duncan Black Winter bridge (currently installed, just need time to demo them) Dimarzio Eclipse bridge (ordered). Elysian TAP 8 (ordered) Bare Knuckle Black Dog bridge (ordered) Lundgren M8 (I can swap these from my vader eventually).
