Are you nuts...

I try not to be an a hole, but i have to vent on this subject...i just picked up a ibby with inf 1's and 2's in it...played it thru two different solid state amps, then brought it over to my friends house and played thru a vintage marshall head and A METAL ZONE...
here is my bitch... a LOT of subscribers said these p/up's were muddy and/or weak...WTF !!! NOT ! Great sounding p/up, perhaps should be marketed by dimarzio... or they really paf36's, like i "heard" somewhere...

Re: Are you nuts...

Yeah, since they really are muddy and weak. Especially when downtuned. If they were marketed by dimarzio, or any other brand, I woudn't touch them with a long stick. Oh well, that's just my opinion. It's good to hear that you liked them.

Re: Are you nuts...

I guess it is all opinion, personally they sound like crap to my ears but I am a real perfectionist when it comes to those sort of things (I blame my dad for giving me the perfectionist ear haha)

Re: Are you nuts...

Me thinks you should try out some REAL pups. They're not trash but there's certainly better ones out there.

You're not being an a-hole. You like the sound of the pickups and some folks don't. "Muddy" and "weak" are very subjective. Ibanez makes those pickups so they are definitely not 36th Anniversary PAFs, especially since the bridge pickup has a ceramic magnet. Never take anyone's opinion on pickups as gospel, except your own.

Yes, it is a matter of opinion.

"Real" pups? Do tell what defines a "real" pickup? As far as better ones, again it's highly subjective and in the end it's a personal choice.

There are so many variables beyond pickups that go into creating the final tone coming out of the speakers. Some folks just have a bias against OEM pickups because they're not Dimarzios or Duncans or Bare Knuckles or whatever. If you like the Infinities that's great.

Maybe you should have put "try out some different pups". However I do agree that they aren't the worst pups around...I really dislike Rockfields...Some people probably love them but it's all a matter of opinion...

Re: Are you nuts...

If you like them, that's what matters. If everyone else likes something you don't, or hates what you like, then you should be able to live with that without needing to rant about it.

I know people who put ketchup on hot dogs, and if anything needs ranting about...

Re: Are you nuts...

I also think the stock Ibanez pups get a lot of undeserved hate. Sure they suck compared to Dimarzio/etc, but compared to a lot of stock pups I think they have a fair amount of balls.

Yeah you know what I was going for... More or less try out a company who puts all their effort into producing different tones through pickups.
