    ^Haven't D-Activators been out for like.. Forever?

    They are in the XPT-700 Xiphos'. We have one at work, pretty solid tone from that thing.

    EDIT: Yes I saw an interview/video with him, and he told that he compresses the shit out of his signal, to get that instant start/stop riff without anything else.

    Not for 8 strings. Looking to upgrade from the stock pu's which are okay, but nothing more. Not that much choice on 8 strings, there's always the Lundgren M8's, but not really looking for a meshuggah sound. Too bad there's no norwegian DiMarzio distributor :/ Riff in Trondheim used to have their entire lineup, but for some dickbutt reason they only carry liek 3 emg pickups now, with no plans to get anything else.
    I'll keep researching for now, BKP has a wide range of pickups offered for 8 strings, so I haven't ruled them out as a brand just yet.

    As for my 6's, im mostly happy except with the LTD atm, thinking about some SD's, like JB + 59
    Classic setup, but I've heard good things about it

    7 strings? Okay. But 8 strings? come on... Where are you guys going with this, 9 strings? Why not just get a harp and be done with it. At least the riffs on that thing are much less likely to sound like ultra low frequency high gain mud.

    That's just the way *I* see it though. It's whatever floats your boat when it comes to these things. I'm just not subscribing to the "the lower tuned, the more trve metuhl and evil it is" club.

    Oh and if anyone actually saw the link I had posted recently, there is a comparison clip between my HZ3 and the EMG 81 in there, go check it out.

    Just listened, world of difference yeah. I'm pretty happy with my EMG81, though I'm itching to test what the deal is with the 81x series, people just can't shut up about how amazing they apparently are.
    If you ever get bored of how the 81 sounds, wire it up with the 18v mod and I promise you you'll love it again, makes everything even better(well, matter of taste, but makes shit less over-compressed)

    Isn't the X-series there to give more headroom and more natural t0nez?

    Ain't that what the 18v mod does?

    The X series isn't as compressed as an 81 w/ 18v mod

    Since we are talking about EMG P/U's...any of you checked out the specs on the new Hetfield set coming out soon? On paper they seem like they might actually be a pretty bad ass PU....they look pretty neat too.

    sure you don't. You're 8 string guitar people. :p

    while I'm at it, does anyone of you guys have any links to some of the great music you produced with your superior gear? Just curious.

    :lol: and where have I said that 8 strings are somehow superior to 6 strings? Are you seriously this buttfrustrated, or are you trying to troll me?

    That new James H pickup looks pretty neat!
    Another thing that I'm just starting to notice these days is that different amps like different pickups. I've had a ton of different amps at one time or another and each one sounds "best" when paired with a different pair of pups. I've got guitars with like "the standards" (emg 81/85, duncan jb/jazz, dimarzio evos/pafpro/tonezone, and also gibson pickups) and they all interact differently with different amps.

    So finding pickups that work well with your amp is another important challenge.

    Ensi, which one is the HZ and which one is the 81? It doesn't say :p

    Also, I placed the order for my Painkiller this morning. I'll put up a comparison between it and my 81 when it comes in.

    ^Remember to record with FRESH___STRINGS on both. Seriously that's important. Do as I did and record the same riff/segment with both and edit them so you can hear one pickup after the other. Also record the same thing in a DI track.

    If you'd check the forum link I sent you'd see :p The 81 plays a bar, then the HZ, then the 81, should've been easily figurableingly (?) out.

    Yeah, that's what I had in mind. I might even try out a different brand of strings. My DR's don't last for shit -___- But anyways, I'll probably do a slower rythym based gain section, a faster paced section, some leads, and cleans for both. I don't really have very high expectations for the clean tone though :rofl: This will be you guys first time hearing my new rig too ;) ... Or my playing in general I think o_O

    Well I saw there was 2 different tracks so I thought that one was the 81 and one was the HZ, I didn't know that you edited it between the tracks. I'm going to go have another listen after TimeWarp finishes raping my ears.

    Does it matter? Do you have a Ph.d in Behemoth?
