maybe ur right. maybe the treadplate aint great. it had been my fav amp on the XT for a while. i don't know why, but i never liked pupper.
i think pickups above 300mV output seem to distort the virtual pre-amp on the treadplate, and it doesnt seem to like that. i'm sure they probably rock through a real amp.
but looking on the dimarzio site...
your right, they arent bass heavy, just very high 404mV output.
i think its the output more than anything else thats the problem with the pickups and the XT. i'll experiment some more....
certainly, turning presence off, setting bass at 9 o'clock, mids at same, treble at 2:30, and gain around 9 o'clock got closer to a sound I liked.
interestingly I had the same problem with a tonezone in my PRS... though it is bass and mid heavy, but its also very high output... 394mV or there abouts.
