I got this pickup in my ibanez for sometime and while it´s great to play with a real amp, it´s a real pain in the ass to tweak in mix because it has some kind of compression in the high mids, it has lot of nasty shit happening from 1khz to 5khz. As I said, with a real amp it doesnt sound bad at all but for recording purposes, sounds like shit almost, it has a lot of aggression and definition with palm mute but due to that kind of fizzy/compression character in the highs frequencies makes me almost hate this pickup. I only notice this now because I am recording some shit and I am trying to pull a real good tone of it, instead of standard metal tone. I have a schecter with a EMG and when playing with a real amp doesnt sound so good as seymour duncan but in the mix, sounds so much better that´s not even funny and I dont have to cut even half of the shit that I use to cut with seymour duncan and the most important, the top end with the EMG it´s smooth while with seymour it´s too agressive and harsh. Anybody have experience with this pickup? I am really thinking in changing this pickup in the future. It´s the seymour duncan JB better? What pickups can you recommend? Its for a ibanez s series with mahogany body. This video shows that nastyness of seymour duncan distortion. Some may like, as for me, I am starting to hate it.
