So I'm thinking of swapping pickups in both of my guitars (Epiphone Goldtop/Ibanez ART100) The stock pups are in the Epi and there's a Dimarzio Evo in the bridge of the Ibby. Was thinking of using the Goldtop for metal (standard tuning only) and so I was wondering if the SD Black Winters would be any good? Also, what would be a good pup for a guitar tuned to drop Bb? I feel the Evolution just isn't cutting it.
If you're drop tuning to as low as Bb, you'll want to look into actives. That'll probably sound best through your 6505+ and TS9 combination.
Also, I plan on playing through an Avatar 2x12? This would be good for use with the 6505+, yes?
Which speakers are in it?
Celestion V30's and bump for more opinions on the pickup swap
V30's are very solid. EMG 81/85 combo or SD Blackouts.
And what about the pick up swap for the Epiphone? Yea, nay?
If you don't want to go with actives, consider the Lace Deathbuckers, the RailHammer Chisel (neck or bridge) and RailHammer Anvil (bridge only), or something like a Tesla VR-Extreme or Plasma.
