no, not another pedal thread

i was playing my AXS32 with Angus's settings, and i turned the gain to 1 1/2, and it was still distorted like sh!t. i think the pickups are the problem. do you know if thats possibly the problem? also, at high gain distortion, instead of being sharp and crisp, its all muddy and gross. any suggestions for CHEAP! pickups with bite? (im talking GFS). thanks guys!

1 humbucker, for my ibanez.

the strat will probably be getting uno hot noiseless for the bridge.

ill check it out

the blues junior boosted with my TS808 kicks ass.

im glad i stopped playing mcr.

EDIT: gah! thats too much.

itll take $65 for the installation. then i need to get one for my Squier, and a hot noiseless for my strat.

$65 + 15 + 15 + 50 + 99 + 99 = omg a lot. i cant do that much. im saving for my cab, and i decided not to buy anymore pedals yet.

Well you could install it yourself. Got a soldering iron?

again (being my parents) if i open any of my gear they flip.

i cant buy off ebay, i cant sell off ebay, and i cant send anything to anyone.

well anyway, what are two bridge pickups that would be cheap ($40 cheap) and have high enough gain for some heavy ac/dc?

Is your primary source of income your guitar playing? If not, just save up for the pickups you really want. No need to obsess over nailing a tone.

Yes, saving up takes time. Just like learning a song or anything else worth doing. Be patient and you'll be rewarded.

If you don't mind me asking, how old are you? The fascist-ness of your parents is pretty bad if you're over fifteen.

im 13.

^^thats a good point.

what sd humbuckers would work well for AC/DC, metal style?

also, should i just get a hot noiseless or a nicer noiseless sc? i just want a sc, no rail or stacks.

thanks!

heres something i find really works for getting around parents. make a big show of researching a topic (pickups and soldering in this case) and they will be more likely to let you do what you want. $65 is a quite a bit for installation. if you show your parents that you are willing to learn about the pickups, how they work, and how to correctly solder them in place, they may change thier mind. you save quite a bit of money that way, which can go towards nicer pickups. either that or save up a bit more, you dont want to be stuck with pickups that arent quite what you want.

i hear good things about high order pickups, but have never been able to try them... they're pretty cheap, and handmade.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Just try it yourself, its not the end of the world if it goes wrong, just resolder. and $65 is a SHITLOAD!! You could buy another damn pup for the price of installation.. But I say attempt it yourself man!
