    The Hauchs are beutiful in that clip. Like a tighter Black Winter with more clarity.

    So the quest for ultimate clarity and tightness has reached new heights

    Maybe for some still, but after the last decade of models after iterations and brands and comparisons... I'm going backwards into dirt and looser tones. Not like a screen door in a hurricane loose, but far away from ultra processed/4 noise gate/whiplash tightness. In almost every brand I've noticed a slight metallic chirp to many the ultra-tight models, and my ears have shied away. The Jupiter's almost have it, but somehow it's mostly filtered out. But that's JUST from hearing clips. I'll have to give them a go someday myself.

    I pitched to Guitarmory on one of their social media "what do you guys want" questions to make an ugly OSDM favoring bridge pickup, and there were a surprising number of agreements to that comment. Stupid hot, articulate, and a bit unhinged. Not looking for razor sharp riff blades, but rather big bludgeoning hammers of tone. Clarity and tightness coming from your playing over gear makes more sense to me. Wes is a stupid good player, and will make anything sound awesome. I like what he designed with SD, I think it sounds cool and checks a lot of blocks. After all these comparison clips, the Black Winter is still reigning as more my preference for no more reason than I just like the fucking sound.

    You are talking with the wrong guy, I'm an overwound PAF/ hot rodded vintage output humbucker / single coil guy :fawk: but honestly this endless search for the tightest bareknaggro djenticulate hi-fi pickup entertains me quite a lot

    I love in all the videos when they roll back the volume and talk about how it cleans up nicely, as if it's an eye popping a-ha moment, never done before

    to be fair not all pickups clean up well when you roll back the volume, especially higher output pickups.

    I love hot rodded vintage pickups, more so than uber tight articulation anymore. I've learned to love the right single coils in certain applications, like on my Ormsby SX7. I wish it was hotter but it just has such a beautiful sound. Not gonna lie, Rick Graham reinvigorated my enjoyment of Strat single coil tones. Simultaneously making me feel shitty about how my playing compared to his is a pile of hot garbage. Wes kinda does that too. Bastards. Gloriously talented bastards.

    Hey guys, figured I'd contribute to this thread. Installed a Jupiter into my Kiesel Aries Evertune 7 last night. Nothing crazy but I did a quick recording this morning.

    I think the bar is a lot lower than they treat it.

    Cleans sound better with less output? Volume knob is functional?? Hmm... Interesting...

    Can we get some clips showing off the rhythm playing? That seems to be where these are gonna shine.

    I know I'm late to the game here but I recorded a quick rhythm track. Hope this helps

    Oh yeah, that sounds killer as fuck.

    I hope this does well enough for a 6-string variant.

    Gabrielle is still my favourite track on that whole album, and that video just confirms it.

    Bump, kinda curious if anyone has experience with attempting to get a 6-string version?

    I have a DC700 that I'm looking to do a pup swap on this, and this vid helped a lot. Thanks.
