Who is making pickups for 8-string guitar?

I'm looking for replacements for my Conklin 8-string.
My guitar has the Seymour Duncan's(active) for bridge position,
but I don't like the pickup much.
What I'm looking for is medium-high output passive ones.
Any suggestions? Thank you.

Re: Who is making pickups for 8-string guitar?

lundgren has an M model, but i'm told it is an equivilant to an emg in output and clarity. I know LGM uses an active EMG, and then they have a Screamin' Deamon 8 string (not sure if this is the same one you have, but normally this pickup is passive). Other than that, i'm not sure if there any. Bareknuckle pickups may make you one of their pickups in an 8 string (and they have quite a selection for different tones), but you'd have to email them..i know they make 7 stringers.

i would suggest paying the custom shop price and having them made, you cant honestly buy that many pickups for 8 string guitar. i assume maybe your looking for something like the tone zone
