I have a Jem with dark matter pickups. They seem weak compared to my previous BFP Jem with PAF Pro pickups. Has anyone else experienced this? Should I just trade out the pickups with PAF Pros?


Thanks for any responses.

WDP comes with Dark Matter 2 pickups. (Dark Matter pickups are the same as Gravity Storms).
DM2 hasn't felt weak, more like warm to me.

Based on DiMarzio's website, PAF Pro has higher output (300) than DM2 neck pickup (275), but lower than DM2 bridge pickup (330).

The height of the pickups of course affect to the output, so ensure the setup is "correct" (in other words, whatever feels and sounds the best for you).
