I usually use an EMG 81 in the bridge amd an S or SA in the neck. I have Duncans in my Framus guitars which sound good but I have yet to record with them and a Dimarzio Fred in my 17th Street which sounds good for certain things as well. But the 81 is my main pickup.
Ah, good deal. I was just wondering since the Horus you sold me has an 85, and now I love that pickup!
EDIT: Have you ever tried that 18 volt EMG mod? I've heard it makes EMG's sound even meaner, adds more chug, and even makes the clean tones better.
Is there much of a difference in the tonal characteristics between the 81 and 85?
I was thinking of trying it out on one of my guitars and seeing what is was like. Seems like it makes sense.
The 81 is brighter as to where the 85 is warmer, they both sound good...just different.
Yeah, it does, I just don't want to change the sound that I already like. I suppose it would be easy enough to change it back though.
i´m a proud owner of an horus deep sea.
hopefully it´s not my last caparison (but that´s a question of money)
so i´m wondering what sound differnce the caparison dellinger model would deliver compared to the horus.
thanks for taking time...
and i hope to see you in good old germany sometime
Congrats on the guitar
The Dellinger and the Horus sound pretty much the same tonally, they are both mahogany and pretty much the same weight. The pickups are a bit different, the Horus comes w/ a BH-RII in the bridge which sounds very warm and the Dellinger has a PH-R in the bridge is a but brighter w/ a bit more edge. Hope That helps
very helpful thank you,
so i think the next guitar i gonna check out will be a dellinger.
i wish you a lot of great riffs for the next album...
