ok i have an RG2570e, and i decided to swap out the stock ibz/dimarzio pup with some real dimarzios, so i did that, got the pups too it too the guitar shop, had them fitted and got it back, i loved it through my v amp on the modern high gain setting, but then to me disgust, when i plugged in at college, through one of the marshalls, it sounded terrible! its all like twangy and crackly, even on maximum gain and distortion, ugh! some please help me!

Your mistake was swapping pickups when you use a Behringer amp.

Nuff said.

nah i played it on those marshall amp before and the pickups were weak and lol on harmonics, these pickups have better harmonics, more gain and generally sound better except for the twangy crackly crap

What Marshall models are you talking about here?

Hmm, it's a bit too vague to come up with a theory, besides maybe phase issues. If you're the kind of person who thinks 'maximum gain and distortion' will produce
better sounds, your ear for tone might not be developed well enough for new pickups to be worth the money...

Are the pickups at a reasonable height? If you tap/wiggle them do they produce any extra noise?
#7
If it's an MG, I'll bet my life savings it's a problem with the amp. Course, I don't actually have any savings.

its not the amps, they are a bit **** but these all different types of marshall, we got a valve and some solid states, they all do the same thing, and about it being phased, i dont know, that could be possible i suppose

oh and about the height, i've raised them as high as possible

Definitely part of the problem. Lower them.

And after lowering the height of your pickups, LOWER YOUR TONE KNOB.

hm, ok but, when i reduce the tone knob i loose repsonsivness, the pups seem to hardly respond to harmonics and hammer on pulloffs or tapping, dammit, this is the second guitar ive bought out of whim and its turned out **** again, think ill just go shoot myself in the face

You've just learned that pickup swaps aren't magic. They don't automatically make you sound better and because some pickups are pretty specialised in terms of sensitivity, voicing and the tone they produce they can occasionally make things worse. I have news for you, the pickups weren't making a blind bit of difference through the V-Amp...things like that really don't care about subtle things like expensive pickups.

You only even consider swapping pickups when the rest of your rig is in order. The Tone Zone in my RG can sound downright crap unless you use it in the right situations.

Having said that your pickups might just be wired wrong

Exactly. You've have about 5 different amps in 5 months, different guitars, you had enough money to apparently buy a Jackson KEV or w/e it is and an RG2570, but kept a V-Amp.

Either you're a spoiled idiot, or just an idiot...

lol well i found out that IT WASN'T ME! it was the guitar, and i think everyone on this thread completly lost the plot lol, apperently there wasn't enough shielding on the wiring, and it was easily fixed, nice to see most UG users are cocks though
