I have a guitar that's got a Seymour Duncan Incader pickup in the bridge. it s a full on heavy metal pickup, but i use it to play punk rock. it's too distorted for tracking in the studio, but it works great live because it makes the guitar sound big and beefy. the only problem again is in the studio, and i dont know what pickup would have a similar sound, without sounding terrible when i record it...
any suggestions?
Fender '72 Telecaster Deluxe Reissue -> Korg Pitchblack Tuner -> Boss PS-5 -> EHX Big Muff -> MXR EVH Phase 90 -> Menatone Pleasure Trem 5000 -> Line 6 Verbzilla -> MXR Carbon Copy -> Boss RC-2 -> Peavey Classic 50
The Fish and Chips Eq works great.
Ibanez SZ320
Peavey 6505+
Marshall 1960B
Dunlop Wah
Dano EQ
There is no such thing as a pickup that is "too distorted", as the only thing that can distort is the signal in the amp, which is dictated by the magnitude of the pre-amp signal. You control distortion from the amp, so if you get too much signal from the pre-amp to the post-amp, just ease up on the gain and your sound will clean up.
