I've had these pickups for a while now and I can't seem to get a good sound out of them, they have a huge bottom end but not in a good way, it's very boomy and lacks any clarity. If i try and eq it to be more bright it just sounds awful, no crunch or tightness at all. they also seem kind of low output for a metal guitar, it almost sounds like the tone knob is all the way down, though my guitar doesn't have a tone knob and i assume it's just always up to the full without one? The pickups also buzz pretty loudly, so weird that i read such good reviews about the pickups before i got the guitar! I made a comparison here to how it sounds vs my EMG 81 in my other guitar, exact same amp settings. What do you guys think? are they bad pickups or is something not right with mine.
