The ultimate pickup!
Cosmo F., 15.05.2017
For my liking, needs and tone expectations this pickup has it all. I mean, it is expressive: it just reproduces the sound based on the intensity of one's picking. It's percussive, bouncy, clear, ballsy, grinding. You name it, it has it! I have this pickup both in its 7-string and 6-string configuration. However, I believe the 7-string version has a tad more output. I've tried the Duncan Nazgul but, naahh, it didn't compare to this bad boy and immediately uninstalled it and replaced it with the D-Activator. To summarise this pickup in a few words: it's the dog's testicles!

Excellent
18.11.2014
Bought this to replace the stock bridge pickup in my Ibanez RG7321. Made an excellent difference! I have never used DiMarzio pickups before and didn't want to spend a whole lot of money on a single pickup for a guitar that will be used for primarily recording.

The output of this pickup I think from the sound of it has a lower output than the stock Ibanez INF pickups in the RG7321, as on the same gain settings on my amp there was less gain coming out. HOWEVER, tonally it was far superior, not quite a BKP, but a huge improvement over stock pups. Overall it was a lot lot tighter, the bottom end was a lot easier to control and the treble notes sung clearer and sustained for longer.

I normally have Seymour Duncan and EMG pickups in my guitar but I am loving this, highly recommend for any genre of metal players. Excels very well in a lot of modern progressive metal music.

Best Passive pickup for a 7 string
30.04.2014
My guitar originally came with stock pickups, and every guitarist knows that these just won't do. The problem with finding pickups for a seven string guitar is that most of them are Active, while my guitar is passive (Ibanez RG7412). I did my research a bit and after watching a few videos i found what i was looking for. This pickups give my Low B-string a whole new life! Like what you hear with many active pickups, the low B-string has a thud like no other string. The harmonics are Amazing! This pickup can go from a super distortion pickup or a super clean pickup. I prefer Heavy metal so i obviously use this more for distortion. And most 7-strings are for metal.

Bottom line. These are the only passive pickups you could want for a seven string!

Hotter than battery!
Pavels R., 13.01.2014
For many-many years I was a huge fan of active pickups. But with bigger experience I've started looking at passive pickups with more interest. I'm not the man who believes in advertising, but after purchase and installation of the pickup I was very surprised! The pickup is clear sounding and articulate. It brings very bright middle and tremble, but without any loss of low end. The brilliance of the pickup is in the tightness and gain. At the first time I had a filling that I use a noise gate all the way how clear and crunchy it was at the same time, but it was only the pickup. Another cool thing about it is no battery need.
