This pickup really surprised me. i had heard good things about it and decided to try it out. It is extremely versatile i can play any style of music that i want with no disappointment. Glassy clear cleans, warm articulate leads that do not muddy up with speed, each note is very clear without having to turn down the gain. Rhythms are powerful but again in no way muddy. With a lot of 7 string pickups the low B string can disappear when playing large chords... not with the Pegasus i can hear each string/note almost as clearly as i would when playing clean. i also love the mid response with this pickup, seems to give it a real punch and character. i have paired this with the sentient which is a perfect match for this pickup. One thing i will say is that these pickups are very tall and as the pickup pockets on my guitar where fairly shallow i had to route them out to almost 20mm deep with some firm sponge under the pickups to raise them up to the correct level. so just make sure you have adequate depth and i promise you will not be disappointed with this pickup. perfect for Jazz through to Djent
As Seymour Duncan website described the Pegasus, which is a new model aim at a more modern progressive metal tone. As I am a metal player who needed such kind of sound, I decided to give it a go.
I installed the pickup onto my ibanez RG 7 strings which previously loaded with a pair DiMazios ( Air Norton 7 / Steve Specials ) . the old bridge sounded pretty scooped which sounded nice and tight. which it good for rhythm playing that does not require so much cut. but since I am more of a lead player, i would definitely need something else.
right after installation, I immediately notice the pickup sound much more punchy at the low end, distorted palms jumped out a lot, yet it is responsive, all the pick dynamics are captured so well, the muted notes immediate sound like a percussive instrument. and it is clean and fast, yet not muffled. which i liked a lot.
and as fore mentioned, I swapped to these pickup for a better lead tone. the Pegasus simply not disappoint me. they sounded so thick which cut thru the mix so easily. and the pickup also sound with a lot clarity in clean tone, definitely is one of those pickups that will cover all the progressive metal players need. highly recommended
