That sounds like something was defective with the pickup. I've had the 6,7 and 8 string versions of the M series, and they always slam the shit out of the front of an amp. They should have plenty of saturation and output. The high end is definitely on the sharper end.Man, you guys have the exact opposite experience with these 2 pickups that I have. Albeit, I have the m8 and the 8 string nazgul.
I started with the m8 back in 2012 thinking it was supposed to be the ultimate 8 string pickup. It has very little low end, seems shrill and undefined. Also, it's output level is surprisingly quiet, so I never could get much saturation out of it. I tried several different wiring configurations, different ohm pots, it was just really disappointing for a $250 pickup. I swapped it out 3 years ago for the nazgul, with no other changes made to the wiring or pots and the guitar came to life. All my issues with the m8 went away, much more output too. I still have the m8 btw, I'll never use it again. It's a shame, in my opinion of course.
sure, go aheadWould you mind if I pull the mp3 from your video and do some analysis?
