My favorite bands so far have been A7X, Metallica, and earlier Papa Roach.

I actually was looking at the Schecter S-1 Elite and the Hellraiser when I posted my topic.

For those, I'd probably suggest Duncans then, but I still think you should go try them and decide for yourself.

Active EMG's are awesome for heavy distortion.

I'd get the EMG 60 in the neck if you're at all interested in any other sort of tone, though. The 85 doesn't do cleans very well at all...

Yes, Dimarzios, they seems to be forgotten latly... man the super distortion was there back in the 70's and still hotter than most duncans, the X2N or the Super 3 would be your best buy at roughly 60 bucks on ebay, retail value of 99.99 us

Just a quick question. Are there any Schecter Tempest owners out there? Im intersted in getting one custom made to my own specs after managing to have a quick play around on a Midway at a guitar shop a few weeks ago. It didnt have much of a metal sound and thats pretty much all i play but i loved the shape and it was smooth to play. With a few mods and such would it be a kickass metal guitar? thanks.

If you want to play metal, well I'd stick with the typical EMG 81 and 85. If you want cleans, then change 85 to 60, but that's pretty rad.

The schecter tempest I tried out at the guitar store was quite a fine one, but try it out yourself anyway.

I have owned and played guitars with both types of pickups. In general, both are great pickups for metal. As most people have said, make sure the EMG's are active otherwise they aren't worth getting. I have EMG's in my Jackson, but I've used Duncans before. I've found that the EMG's tend to offer a wider range of styles you can play (from pop punk to thrash metal) and the Duncans weren't really as versatile. But either seem like they would be great for you.

i have 2 schecters, one with duncans and one with active emgs. if your into the metal i would definatly suggest the emgs, the only problem is that their clean tone isnt the best, so thats when i use the duncans. but for metal the actives are definatly the way to go but ya like everyone else says go try them out to see what you like but imo the emgs are better.

P.S. like a couple people said before, if you have a little extra money i'd get a cheaper, nice looking schecter and put in some bare knuckle pickups. best on the market for metal and any other style period.

They will not customise any of the Diamond Series of guitars just so you know.

I find its a bit too trebely. I quite like it in mahogony, but there are lots of better 'metal' pickups out there.

EMGs are recognised as the best brand for Metal

Duncans seem to be trying to branch out into all styles of music, which was a mistake made by DiMarzio, and Gibson before that. EMG have had the same sound for years, they know what they are doing and they do it well, high gain, metalcore sound.

i've got two jackson dinkys, one has emg 81/85 and the other seymour duncan jb/'59.

i find the emgs have a lot more clarity and treble, while the duncans give more of a punchy thump - at high gain obviously.

I mostly use the emg's for the more modern metal sound like machine head, kse , pantera , trivium , ...


Metallica is using EMG's. so have you tried some of their songs with EMG's?? they're using 81's and 85's or 81's and 60's if i remember.

You mean Gibson and Fender. Well it depends entirely on what you like and your preferances. I personly like gibson better because of the way the humbuckers sound and the way the necks feel but thats just my personal taste.
