hello people,
i plan on upgrading the pups on my k7, because i think the stock ones sound kinda weak. do you know any pups that woud give it more punch? i would rather stick to passive ones, i dont like the idea of a guitar having a batt in it. any help is appreciated, thx

Well, he said he wanted passives....

EDIT:
How about...
Neck: SH2 - Jazz - Warm, thick rhythms. Says Jazz, but it's great for alot of different styles. This will allow you to get good cleans, for versatility, too.
Bridge: SH-6 Duncan Distortion - High output HB, with alot of aggressive crunch.

Both of them can be ordered for 7 string guitars.

Dimarzio do a 7 string D-sonic, should be right up your street, maybe with a blaze in the neck. It's probably worth checking out their new Deactivator model, although I've not really heard anything about them myself.

The 7 string EMGs don't fit standard humbucker routes anyways. I have no idea why the **** they would be that stupid, but I guess they decided to make the poor 7-string metalheads do more work.

thx for the help, the sh-6 seems to be a pretty cool choice for the bridge.
i wonder whether its possible to like try them out or anything, since i have no idea how they sound in my k. but on the other hand, shops would never allow me to install them in my k without being sure that i buy them. so, is it normal that u buy pups without actually knowing what they will sound like?

--i checked the deactivator's description, its actually an active pickup

Deactivators aren't active - they're passives that have been designed to emulate actives. Or at least that's what Dimarzio say - whether they've succeeded is a different matter, but they definitely aren't active.

Seymore Duncan has some clips on their site...Some shops, like the one I go to, has a return policy, so you never know. Just gotta check.

uh, thanks - im definitely too dumb to read... so if they emulate actives they gotta be really powerful, right

Dunno - I think it's more a case of trying to replicate the tonal characteristics of actives...although they're still pretty high output, I think they're comparable to Evo's in that respect.
