Testing and comparing pickups.
What in your opinion would be a universally accepted method of testing pickups?
I posted a thread about pickups I just switched to and got several different observations from people. So basically not to anyone's fault, it's kind of all for nothing.
I've seen some attempt to demonstrate pickups through whatever given rig, and this in my opinion is not the way to go. I mean, if you can get the sound you;re looking for then it's all good, but it does nothing for someone looking at the same pickup. You can literally make a Kay pickup sound great through an axe-fx is my whole point.
I also dont take any stock in the little "eq" and ohm/millivolt descriptions on the dimarzio site since once in one of a multitude of different guitars, again, it's all for nothing.
Does anyone have any ideas on a good benchmarking method that they may have used in the past? i guess what I am shooting for is something that more than one person could use to get a good idea of what they would end up with.
