yesterday i played a Schecter C1 with EMGs through a Cube 60 in the store and it sounded seriously bad, why did it sound worse than my Blackhawk?

solid states will clip the output of active pickups so they sound ****. The only way to get proper tone out of actives is with a valve amp

This.

And that's also one of the reasons I never buy Active PUs.

It's definately the amp. I never played thru Roland amp until recently and OMG they are the worse. I tried them because so many people here seem to love them and recomend them all the time. I played two top of the line Gibson Les Pauls thru a a micro cube and the Roland cube and they made the guitar sound like one you would get at Wal*Mart. People put down Line 6 but I think my amp is 100x better than the Rolands I tried.

I have several guitars with EMGs and I have no problem getting good sound thru my SS amp.

I swear, every post I've seen is you putting down Roland Cubes .

Yeah, because I went to try them and they are crap. I was willing to give them the benifit of doubt until I played thru some. I would never comment on something I didn't try myself now that I tried them I know they are no where near as good as people say.

I agree with him about the cubes...everybody here recommends them and they aren't much better (if any better) than the amps the are recommended over.

its just the way SS does with active pickups. The few times I use my EMG equipped guitar with my SS it just sounds sick, not in a good way.

Honestly, my EMG's through my spider 75w sound okay. But through my b-52 they sound awesome. But its not a $700 difference by any means.
