I think X2N's are the hottest. They have output of 510 mV, which I think is more than the Invader or Dimebucker. And that's hot for a passive one.

Frankly, although they're the hottest, they're not the best sounding. Invaders sound so much better.

But if you want REALLY hot, EMG 81 is the only way to go. Their output level is about 1025 mV.

how many mV is a Duncan SH4 ?

Duncan invaders and Dimarzio x2ns are good

I prefer the invader because the x2n is just too much. It's even more than an 81.

Thats what I thought, not 100% tho


evos are high output. i plug my guitar into a marshall and it overdrives and gets feedback real easily.

and i have to agree with the above. the hottest passive pickup i can think of is the x2n. it's insanely hot considering there's not 9v attached to it. i kinda think it's also a bit harsh on the highs though. if you put it in a baritone like my friend did then it's not so bad.

The original evo pickups are very high output. The new Evo 2 pickups arent near as high output.
EMG 81. The motherbucker does win though, it distorts on just about anything Ive heard.

dimarzio super distortions (not super high-output, but they sound amazing)
bill lawerence xl-500 (again, doesn't have the highest-output, but it has a nice sound)

I have a Dimarzio super distortion. Not that good on a basswood. Too bassy, ok mids and very less treble. Ouput is allright.

bare knuckle makes some of the best high gain pups. warpig, mm, and nailbomb are the big 3, along with the trilogy suite and sinner (single coils). all are surprisingly versatile, and the humbuckers have killer distortion as well as cleans.
#23
^ Man, those are expensive! I forget the exchange rate but that warpig set costs over $220! I could get a good set of Active EMG's, put them on my Mahagony body gtr and still have tons of money to spare for all the 9v battries those EMG's are gonna eat up ! Sorry, those are not for the average guitarist on a budget !
