look it up on wikipedia that where i read up on it i heard from a bunch of metal heads who say that pick covers clean ur sound up maken it more bluesy thats why my bc rich dagger is my blues guitar because u dont get good metal tones with metal covers, honestly active pickups are good to look at and sound good

Almost 90% sure they don't change your sound.
Maybe just more blues pickups have covers since that kind of a bluesy look?

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

im totally in agreeance, the cover would have to be made of something mighty odd to change the tone significantly enough to notice it.

Oh well, now the empty shell of what used to be chocolaty goodness can contain a tasty guitar circuit.

Among the conventional metal covers, ones made of nickel or nickel-silver have the least effect on tone. Pickup covers generally make your tone a little warmer, and perhaps darker depending on the material. Plastic pickup covers have no effect on your tone.

unless ur confident with a soldering iron and removing stuff dont bother. I looked into this before and its not as simple as it should be. Just save some money and get new pickups and get them installed pro or by a mate that knows what there doin.
