I made a video comparing the two sets of pickups and i'd love to hear your thoughts on it. Same amp setting, pickup height used and i restrung the guitar with a fresh set of strings before recording. Feedback is much appreciated
Juggernaut bridge > JB
Jazz > Jugg neck
Anyone ever try a JB in the neck?
JB and 59 set for me is the ultimate standard rock set. Followed closely by Dimarzio TZ/AN.
Specialized pickups like Juggs are good for what they are but not good overall IMO. I like them in my Mayones for metal and downtuned stuff. That’s about it. YMMV.
Yup. Killer. Dual JB is a common “hot” set for Les Pauls.
Apparently Tommy Thayer likes it because they’re stock in his signature guitars.
Now that i've been playing them for a few days, i'm kinda surprised the jb is higher in output than the juggs. The chugs are kinda lacking atm. Should i raise the pickups more (4mm at bass and 3-4 at treble side atm) or just change my axe preset?
It's funny you say that! I have a set of Black Hawks 7 and I found that exactly. I was sort of dazzled, because it seemed to me that I was doing something wrong.Yes, BKP are known for being more sensitive to the height setting. Try a couple of heights to see what works best; some work better higher, some better lower.
DI's for everything but the crunch sounds are available if you wamt to reamp. I don't think they sound very similar, at least when i play them they feel very different.Fantastic! They're incredibly close!
(Either that or your amps don't let them "breathe"... )
I was GASing for a Juggernaut set. Now I'm not!
I have several instances of the JB and it's one of my "go to" pickups. It's tight, reliable and very balanced. The 59/JB set is one of my Seymour Duncan favourites and, to be honest, you cannot go wrong with it!
From your video, I found the Juggernaut set a bit more focused. They are really designed for the Djent scene! But still, pretty good overall!
I recently installed a DiMarzio Titan set on an Ibanez S and now I'm curious about how that compares to the Juggernauts (and Ragnaroks).
