Re: Universe Pickup Recommendations?
Thanks for the reply, I appreciate you taking the time. The metal I play ranges from 80's hair metal, to NuMetal, but I don't really play much of the grind core or thrash stuff.
I can't say that I am dead set on the D-Activator neck, but I do enjoy it. It is a really punchy pickup and has a very unique voicing and EQ which I would not think works well in the neck position, but really does a surprisingly good job.
I think I may toss a D-Activator in the bridge just to see if the balance is there. The reason I did not put one in is because of a few players saying it lacked power to drive the front end of the amp hard.
I am a little skeptical of the EVOs, because I have read about folks saying the pickup is bright to the point of being shrill. Maybe some pre EQ could mellow it out.
Thanks again for your response.
