Although a lot of users wax lyrical about this pickup, I'm afraid it's just too gainy and muddy for my liking. I like my amplifier set up already with a lot of gain and when I installed this pickup in my Jackson 7 Soloist I had nothing but uncontrollable feedback, both in the rehearsal room and on stage, as well as lack of clarity in the general sound. For that reason I've replaced the pickup with my favourite pickup ever: Di Marzio D-Activator. As I said above, I like my tone with a lot of gain from the amp and this pickup just didn't cut it for me. I have been playing for over 35 years and believe I know what I'm talking about. Opinions, however, differ.
Ok, so after watching several videos on YouTube and getting as much info as I could on the nazgul I felt confident that this was a safe choice for my style of playing...and I wasn't wrong. The nazgul is perfect for high gain picking that needs a lot of articulation. It has quite a bit of output for a passive so it's ideal for a moderate level of gain, but the bright side is if you're playing through something like a 5150 or engl, then you can turn down the gain on the amp and get the best out of the pickup. I don't personally use chords often when I'm in a high gain setting but I would say if you do go for the Pegasus instead. But if you play in a style akin to necrophagist or any other single note fast paced metal group then this is the pickup for you. I love my clean channels so I paired is with the sentient and split the coils. Wow. Just wow. The combo is great. When you combine the nazgul and sentient you get some really sparkly cleans, but if you go for any of the thumping/slapping stuff then that's where this combo will really shine. The nazgul adds just a bit of grit to really cut through the mix and is really responsive. So far there isn't anything I don't like about the pickups. They are perfect for metal, but won't hold you back if you want to play any other genre. Do yourself a favour and go for it!
