Just curious if anyone has tried both fusion and d-activators. I have a d-act set that I never got around to installing, but I am thinking about making the swap on the fusion's. I like a more metal sound. Heavy is better for me. Would it be worth it? If not I might go with Duncan Black Winters...
I did a demo of a D Activator vs the X version using my RG's (470 and 550 both MiJ). Interesting results. Played them through a Bugera 333 and recorded it via Samson condenser mics into Cubase.

Thanks for any likes, comments and or subscriptions :D
Looking for a pickup for a 540pii. I thought to call dimarzio and have them make me up a ibz f3 which would give the guitar an original look and tone. It will be more expensive though than just putting in a d activator ... Which would be my second choice.
I've never played an ibz f3...

Hey guys just purchased my Dimarzio D-activator for the bridge of my Ibanez RG08ltd. It has the v7/v8 combo in it, iv only replaced hte bridge pickup so far untill i can afford my liquifire!

So I had the DA neck wich I liked a lot so I thought I give the DA bridge a shot.
I had an X2N in the bridge before the DA and I have to say, the X2N is muddy compared to the DA.
The guitar is a Cort X-2(I know its crap), it has a basswood body. The amp is a Peavey Valveking 212 with V30's.
I just got my D activator neck, I have an X2N in the bridge. I was first afraid it is going to sound thin and trebly because lot of people were saying that. But it's not! I don't know what those people where hearing, it has got a massive low end. It is bright but I wouldn't say it's thin at all...

Its black with the silver pole pieces, F spaced for the bridge slot. 6 string.

Would putting D Activators (bridge and neck versions) in a Les Paul with a maple cap be a bad idea? It's a Gibson Les Paul Traditional - mahogany body of course.
A lot say the Super Distortion works well in a Les Paul, but I like to play in drop D most of the time and I have heard that the...
