Like it Heavy?
ISBM 19.07.2016
On the face of it, the Sentient may seem an odd companion for the Nazgul, the output is completely different, but it's not just about pure power!

The Nazgul is a low, super high gain, growling beast of a bridge pickup which handles low, dropped tunings with ease. You get great clarity and a not too bass-heavy tone (you don't need a bassy pickup if you're already tuned down an octave or two, right?!). From my research it is perhaps a little underwhelming in Standard, though I have not tried it myself above C#.

The Sentient is a Vintage output baby by comparison, with an alnico magnet (Nazgul is ceramic) and voicing set between classic rock and jazz. The combination is perfect however, with the Nazgul being the chug-master during the rhythm and the Sentient providing soft flowing leads at high gain. The clean tones too are beautiful, in all three positions on my ESP.

Highly recommended for anyone looking for passive pickups to replace ones that just can't handle the metal you crave. Though are they better than the active equivalent? That's for you to decide.

Value for money? Depends on how much you want to sound awesome...

Absolutely awesome

The best possible choice when you're in a metal band, absolutely insane, from the great rhythm Nazgul to the pure Solo Sentient and everything in between.Best choice for the high distortion and great for cleans.You can get everything out of them,especially for all kinds of tuning,very versatile.

Super ANGRY pickups
MAPTbIHOB 17.02.2020
Great sound, great dynamics, great quality!
And the mat surface, just like my guitar. Everything is super cool.
My guitar master said, that they sound like one of the best from all passive pickups that he ever heard.
Also the clean sound of Sentient is very clear and soft, so you get a metal guitar with super cool clean sound(Sentient).
Cool set! Recommend

Better sound than expected
Donald_DC5 26.06.2020
I bought these on a whim after looking through countless videos comparing passive and active pickups. Very glad I did as they are absolutely perfect for the type of music I play (Metal, Metalcore, Death Metal) requiring only slight amp changes. Notes are heard well and I rate these higher than my old actives I got rid of. As long as you know how to do a bit of soldering these make for an easy install.
