Blackouts

Ricky M., 21.06.2014
For me these pickups were not great. i have never really been a fan of active pickups and found that these were no exception to my views. But i took a chance and for me did not work out. This is why:

I found them rather muddy and highly compressed, they are perfect for 'Djent' but that's where it ends. i like to play a variety of music from, blues through to heavy metal and the occasional jazzy chord progression and for me these just could not pull it off. They seem to be a bit of a one trick pony, flat rhythm sounds and muddy cleans. But that is not to say that they are not fit for purpose. I Believe these where made specifically for the Djent/prog player and will work perfectly doing so.

i would just advise some research on these pickups before buying and really know what sound you are looking for. This is just my opinion.

Pickups seymour duncan blackouts for 8 strings guitar.

GuyL, 03.06.2011
I bought these microphones to change the original mics of my ibanez rga8.
To say that the change has been radical.
These microphones are overpowered and very precise, they forced me to lower the level of gain on my head amp.
They are active, but unlike EMG microphones, they have a grain and heat that passive mics have. The sound of the ground string was a real original boil, now everything is back in order. I get a precise sound with deep bass and sharp treble, mediums that sing, my guitar has become a war machine, I love them !!!
