Hey guys, i got some gfs crunchy paf's in my sg and they're not that great for lower tunings. So, I'm looking for a good bridge humbucker to handle high gain drop tuning.

Think bullet for my valentine type sound.

Well I guess the question really is do you want Actives or Passives?

I don't really care if it's active or passive, but i only have 60 bucks and actives are out of my price range.

If he has a passive in the neck, he won't be able to combine it with an active bridge. Go for the drop sonic, they sound killer from what i've heard

This thread is over a week and a half old. How is that comment possibly constructive? Check the date before you post next time, if you please.

A week and a half is not really that long considering this is a rec thread, not a project thread. Also, it just so happens that thicker strings is a VERY constructive comment. You can be playing with the best pickups in the world, expressly designed for drop tunings, but if you're playing in drop C with standard 9's your sound will suck unbelievably, regardless of your pickups.


Careful with the "this thread is a bit old so you suck for bumping it" bandwagon mentality...there are times when it doesn't apply.


TS: you might investigate the Full Shred by Seymour Duncan for drop tunings. It's not as br00talz as some high output pickups, but it is very articulate, so it won't mush out as bad as other hot pickups. Also, it's been around a lot longer than the drop sonic and alternative 8, so they end cheaper in auctions. They end on eBay for $30-$40 or less.

I wasn't so much mad that he bumped an old thread, it was the fact that he bumped four within minutes of each other, mostly with just agreeing with previous statements in the threads.

I didn't notice. Chronic bumpers are lame, he deserved it then, I suppose.

EMGs or DiMarzio D Activators or D Sonics.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"
