    Thats what I have in my KM-7. They were a big improvement over the Nazgul/Sentient Set in my opinion. The Nazgul was just way too nasaly in the midrange for my taste.

    I like the way the Lundgren M series sound way more than the ceramic warpigs though.
    I would just drop in a set of lundgren M7's and call it a day

    I've never tried a KM-7, but I've got a C-pig in a DC7X, which is fairly bright as I'd expect the Schecter to be, and it absolutely rips. Definitely worth a shot IMO

    Had this setup, didn't like it. Never have tried Nazgul/Sentient

    Got it in a trade with the pups in and the previous owner seemed to enjoy it.

    The guy I traded it to is looking to change the pups as well.

    Different strokes for different folks, but to me it sounded very "Sterile"

    Could it be the scale length? I'm very used to 25.5 so who knows.

    But it seemed to me that this combination of guitar and pickup for whatever reason gave me a tone that wasn't very dynamically pleasing. I had issues getting "Feeling" out of notes.

    It also caught me off guard how it seemed low output.

    With all that said it does one thing really well, crushes on lower end.

    The high end felt shrill for my taste. When I jammed with out of my 6505 4x12 with a drummer It was some serious clarity and crunch. Good for articulate chugs, not so great for death metal etc

    But was looking for something more versatile. :2c:

    I know Keith Merrow & Wes Hauch have used a KM-7 with Mark Holcomb's Alpha & Omega pickups in it on a couple videos, seemed like a great match. Mark's said that there should be 6, 7, 8 string pickups next month or Q1 2017.
