Best Actives?

Hey I was wondering what people's opinions are on the best actives for mahogany, at first i was looking at Bare Knuckle (till i found out their all passives fml) and i dont realy like Emg's, i want too go for something a little different. Thanx.

Re: Best Actives?

I've played mahogany-body Schecter with Duncan Blackouts, and a mahogany-body Dean Dave Mustaine with Livewire Dave Mustaine pickups, and my vote goes to the Mustaine pickups. Hope it helps!

Re: Best Actives?

I prefer EMG and EMGX series. I despise the 81 though and choose first the 60a(neck) and 60C(bridge) or any combo of those and 59,85 and SA's.

Re: Best Actives?

I also like external preamps added for certain pickups and guitars.
