    I love the Black Heavens in my Duvell 6! They have a throaty growl to ‘em. I did the wiring a little different this time. I soldered a grounding wire to the braid shielding and ran that with the green ground wire to the pot vs. soldering the braided shielding directly to the pot. Looks neater IMO.

    A shout out to Nick at Axe Palace for hooking me up with the pups.

    Nice! I've heard good things about them. Less "djenty" than the M6?

    I only have the M7 to compare it to. The M7 is one of my favs. I love the neck for leads as well as clean and the bridge pickup is monstrous. It sits perfectly in a mix with little tweaking IMO.

    My jury is still out on the Black Heaven's but so far I think they are warmer with less bite than the M7's. They have a distinct low mid growl to them on a Rectifier that is pretty addictive. This guitar is currently in drop D.

    I dropped it down two steps with the pitch shifter in the Axe III and while it is not a like to like comparison for the real thing, it gave me an idea of what they could sound like in a lower tuning. They sound pretty darn good! Warmer, rounder more organic than the M7's ..not quite as edgy. Overall pretty stoked to have them and I think they will work well in this 6 string.
