Re: High output alternative to Mo' Joe?
The overall EQ will change a bit no matter what pickup you buy.
The next closest step in my mind, with more output and more bite / pick attack, is the EVO2.
It has a little more output without going over the top.
It's a warm sounding pickup like the Mo Joe.
The EVO 1 has a lot more output with a lot more highs that make it loose warmth in my opinion.
The higher the output, the less dynamic control and warmth you're going to have, so I like to stay under 400 with the output to maintain both.
The Tone Zone and the Breed are two other pickups that fall in to this range.
The Breed is kind of in the middle of warm and not warm.
With an output of 356, it is all balls out, very aggressive, a real surprise at 356.
The Tone Zone is an interesting pickup.
It has an output of 375 just like the EVO2, but with totally different results.
The Tone Zone is warm with great pick attack and lots of bass, kicking the hell out of you speakers, giving out a huge wall of sound.
It has great pick attack too.
Just some food for thought.
