They're so cheap that it's a hard one to turn down, huh? Worth it just to see what it does.
I've never been a fan of HZ's. The Dream 90's are going to make quite a difference to your sound.

These are the first gen of the HZ's,I think the later model are the ones that look like the active emg's and have alnico magnets. My type are the open pole type and came stock in the guitar.



Honestly, I love them for classic rock and some heavier stuff. I have a Les paul with 81/85's but its definitely more of a one trick pony than the cort, Could play three blind mice and it would sound like some 80's era metal stage act ;-)



Even with the postage, those p90's are quite cheap to the UK.

I had a few bits off them years ago, when i did up an old tele. very helpful customer service.

I've contemplated putting some of those Dream 90's in my Iceman actually. I may one day, they're a pretty sweet pickup and for $30 they're hard to resist.

Nice, I have the same Cort with the Hz pickups. My problem with them is the louder my amp is the more treble there is. This doesn't seem to happen with my other Cort.

I've actually been trying to get a "Into the Void" tone with the M600, getting pretty close. The problem is I have 11"s on the M600 and tuned down, when it's tuned down it sounds very thin and hollow. Not sure why.

Anyway I can get earlier Sabbath tones with my Cort G260 into my amp loud. My dad builds pedals and built a RangeMaster for me. The RangeMaster doesn't really help for Sabbath tones but does really well on Rory Gallagher tones

I havnt down tuned the m600, only to Eb a few times. and I am playing with slinky skinny top heavy bottoms... so not ideal for sabbath either.

I havnt got a problem with too much treble either, as you state. I havnt noticed it anyway.

One day soon I shall upload a clip of the SG with dream 90's and 8's on through the 100TI ....................... one day soon :-)
