Hi UG

I'm buying a B.C Rich JRV 7 string, and I need to change the pickups.
I want to play some really brutal, fast and technical stuff, like Beneath the massacre, Monumental Torment, etc. So I'm gonna play technical riffs and slow slamming breakdowns. Can you recommend me a set of passive pickups for this type of music?
The guitar has a tremolo, so consider this when choosing the pups.
Thanks!

Lets see - various Dimarzio pickups (X2N, D-Activator, D-Activator X, etc etc), as well as just about any Bare Knuckle Pickup.

I'd also go for either an X2N in the bridge and D-Activator neck, or two D-Activators, can't go wrong with them, they handle high gain perfectly.

Damn, I'd try Bare Knuckles, but I can't get'em in Poland and Germany :| at least I can't find them.

You should check out the Seymour Duncan Black Winter set. They are easily the most aggressive, yet well-rounded pickups I've ever played. There is quite a lot of output, yet dynamics are still present. I mostly play black metal, but I use a tone that leans a little more toward the thicker, more full death metal kind of tone. And I also play some tech-death stuff and these pickups are amazing for that. I just finished this track the other day -- I used just one guitar with the Black Winter set. The rhythms/tremelo picking bits were all the BW bridge pickup; cleans were with both pickups selected, and the leads were a mix of the neck pickup and the bridge again on the very last lead section. 6505 for all heavy parts, Classic 30 for cleans. I think this song does a pretty good job of representing the range that the BWs can cover:


The Gathering of Hosts

One note about the BWs though -- they are not really a "djent" pickup (meaning all of the life (low-end) was sucked out of them.) There is a controlled amount of low-end which is balanced nicely with the highs. Some people who play extreme downtuned material may not enjoy the presence of that low-end in the tone, as it interferes with that djent "twang" for lack of a better term. But for 90s -- early 2000s extreme metal tone, they are amazing pickups.

Black Winter, or the Pegasus/Nazgul set. Both are great for technical detuned metal.

This thread is 5 years old I'd imagine the OP has resolved his issue by now!
