ok, so i know that active pickups are basically a pickup with a mini processor in it that boosts the output cleans up the sound etc etc. what i was wondering was what companies make them? i only know of EMG, i was wondering if you guys knew of any others?
My Gear:
Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112
etc.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Seymour Duncan makes the Livewire set, which is Dave Mustaine signature. They are also releasing a new one that Alexi from Children of Bodom uses, but the name currently escapes me.

Oh ok, it's the Blackouts. From what I've heard, Alexi has started to use those. i know there was talk of it on here a few weeks ago.
#7
it's probably their blackouts, which i think is what this duncan designed set i played was based on, if they are...my god you have to get them.. they had the tone and soul of passive's, but with the power and harmonics of active's, they were very clear on distortion, but not so much to where they sounded sterile, was very nice
#8
hmm ive never heard of that... if he does use them they cant be that bad then i guess
