Only time ive ever played on a set of P90's was when i lived with my mate and he had some 60's made Framus with these pups in. Anyhow, i wanna know if anyone knows any pro's that use P90's for metal/hardcore or anyone here use em?

Sunn O))) use P-90s. I dunno, I always thought that Mastodon used a P-90-equipped guitar on a couple of songs, I must be wrong though.

Metal with p90s, I know Iommi used em for a time. But hardcore or death metal would really be pushing it for p90s.

How about EMG P81s

P90s can do it, but they don't sound like humbuckers... they have a pretty distinct tonal character.

If they were bad p-90's maybe.

Metal tone is mostly in the amp. P90s have the clarity and the tonal girth, so why not? A little bit of single coil articulation wouldn't go ammiss at all in a high gain situation.

I have considered the P81's

I'd just be pretty bummed if i put a set in my columbus over lets say a Seymour Duncan Blackout and they sounded gash. Do they respond like humbuckers in respect to say the output etc. Do they give off tasty pinches?

P90's are great for sludge/stoner/doom metal due to the middy-ness of them. Might not be the best choice for metal/hardcore though.

I know I'm late in responding but the P81 is an 81 in a P90 housing.

If I can play metal on Fender single coils(Which I can. Really should upload a better clip), you can do it on a P-90. Also this;

Why wouldn't you be able to? Other pickups might sound better, depending on what type of tone you want, but it's definitely possible.
