Holydivers are always alnico.
Thanks for the recommendation on the Blackdog pickups for my Schecter C1 Elite.
It arrived last Friday and I'm really liking it.
Been messing with the height adjustment a bit but its a great sounding pickup. Nice throaty growl to it.
Funny how my other pickups sound kinda flat and unexciting now...
I'm thinking the Blackdog neck is my next purchase....
You're welcome! The Black Dog neck is amazing, you will love it
I posted a clip of the Black Dog bridge pickup over in the pickup forum if anyone is interested.... Thanks
Hey Zimbloth, what would you suggest for an Ibanez RG752FX? Basswood body, maple/wenge neck, rosewood board. Playing tech death/death core type stuff in drop A? I was thinking a C Pig maybe? Or something completely different like a Dimarzio D-Activator?
Sounds great man.
D-Activator is cool but a bit too bright for my tastes, lacks warmth. I would suggest the C-Pig, Blackhawk, or even the Painkiller.
I'm looking for a replacement BKP set in my standard JP7- as of right now I have a calibrated aftermath set in there that I did like but it's not sounding up to par with my tastes- the scowl/honk you get from the low strings is something I'm not too privy on anymore. I'm looking for something a little more aggressive, but highly versatile with singing leads.
Yeah I really don't like the Aftermaths in JP7s, not something I would have recommended myself. I would suggest the Holydiver or Black Hawks. Aggressive, clear, but fuller and better lead tones. I like Emerald as well.
Thanks Nick, I actually was thinking Blackhawks as well I'm assuming you are reccomending the ceramic bridge option?
Hi Nick. You seem to be the man to ask so here goes: Ibanez S970WRW, mahogany body, rosewood top and board, wenge neck. From standard to C standard tuning playing lots of proggy stuff ala Protest the Hero but also needs to get really dirty when I turn up the gain.
I would suggest the Painkillers or Emeralds.
UPDATE!! You can now order Blackhawks or Cobras in white on our website. Or even zebra!
Hey Nick! What is the best BKP humbucker for leads so that when you split the neck you are closest to a single coil type sound. I guess what I want is a neck humbucker that will do shred metal but when split gives you a great single coil tone. Not sure if it's possible but thought I would ask.
I have a Duvell Elite 7 on the way that I am thinking about. Thanks
There is no "best" really. For a Duvell 7 Elite I would suggest the Painkiller set, Nailbomb/VH2 set, or Rebel Yell/VH2 set.
Hey Nick thanks for previous suggestion, worked out really well! Now after something for an Esp Horizon NT-II, maple neck through, mahogany wings, ebony board. Stock JB is a bit bright/thin for my tastes. Playing Faceless, Haunted, Periphery type stuff in D Standard/Drop C.
I would appreciate some pickup suggestions for my Ibanez RG-7321.
I'm sure your familiar, but it has a basswood body, 5pc maple/walnut neck, and a rosewood board.
Just like I did with the blackdogs I put in my schecter, I'm looking for a good modern metal sound and good clarity but not necessarily the highest output.
I would suggest the Black Hawk or Warpig (ceramic). We have some in stock on our website too.
I would suggest either the Emerald or ceramic Nailbomb in there.
Hi Nick! How's it going?
Do you have any experience with Stormy Mondays? I intend to use it on a 30.8" scale mahogany neckthrough pau ferro board. I plan to tune it in some sort of cello tuning, going from Ab0 to Ab4 and it will be used for solos, improvs and chords mostly. Do you think a Holydiver set could be too much?
Oh, the camo covered Miracle Man 7 set has arrived. You are the man! :-D
Are you sure you're going to want to be soloing on a 30.8" scale? The frets are like a mile apart and the tension pretty intense
Anyways I would suggest the Mule set over the Stormy Mondays. Great sounding pickups for everything from jazz to metal, and handles low tunings very well.
Well, that is where the cello tuning comes in, with Ab0 Ab1 F2 D3 B3 Ab4 the stretches are not that far... I just have to think in terms of 3rds and 6ths all the time.
About the Mules, do you think I should avoid the Stormy Mondays for such low tunings? Because that is what I have been offered on a trade... If you think it is not a good idea, I guess I'll be on the lookout for a set of Mules.
