^^Agreed on the mid hump not being a big deal. You can just turn the mids down on your amp if it gets to be too much. I've also found that an EQ pedal in the loop combined with an OD up front...

SD Black Winters are bright but have a good balance of lows, mids, and highs. Lots of output too. I doubt you'd have any trouble getting enough presence. They are basically Duncan Distortions on...

It should work fine with a 9 volt battery -- it's designed to do so. But a 9-volt power supply will not work well, or so I've been told. But for some reason, if you run one off a daisy chain it...

Well, my impression when I played one was that it can get a pretty decent low-end chug going; plenty of low-end available. Distortion was pretty grainy (which isn't necessarily a bad thing for death...

Eminence Swamp Thangs are rated @ 150 watts, and sound awesome with 6505s. Plus, they are one of the most efficient (loudest) speakers I've ever heard, so you won't be tempted to turn up the volume...

I'd just get another Crunch Lab if you liked it before -- though it's a pretty hot pickup, it can do sounds other than metal. Actually, you should consider a D Sonic as well. It is very similar to...
