So are all Lace Alumitones really that bad?

    I think it's interesting some of you are saying it was too bright, while I felt like it was too dark. I guess they must be both sides of the same coin when it comes to there being no mid hump depending on your tuning and other gear.

    I might be some kind of masochist since I'm getting them anyway. 90€ for a set looks like a good deal for current prices. I'm very curious since the clean clips I've heard from them sounded awesome. If they suck that bad I can always flip them back.

    I hate that when I find someting that looks about perfect for what I want, plenty of times it ends up being lackluster. Covered BKPs in soapbar format weight a metric ton compared to these, so I really wanted them to be good when they were released :lol:

    I mean I loved the Deathbucker I had, really clear and tight, one of the best sounding pickups I had when I had a pretty muddy, flubby amp.

    Never tried any of the 7-string versions, but the regular 6-string Alumitone & Deathbucker pickups were pretty dang good imo...

    For anyone one that prefers the full spectrum that something like a traditional single coil has, they fill a need.
