I've been thinking of replacing my stock Seymour Duncan JB-4 pickups on my KV2 with something that can handle dropped tunings at little better. Anyone have experience with the Lace Drop & Gain pickups? Or any other pickups that might do the job? No EMG please

What have you against EMG?
We've drained full confession booths, polluted drinking wells with our repentances, and then stood grinning with our arms around the shoulder of a rotting child.



If you resist change, you will be here forever.

Well they sound too processed for me, I prefer more raw / dirty passive pickups, with a broader spectrum.

I've been thinking about bareknuckle warpigs, but some people say they can't get a real good sound out of them. And I think they're overpriced as well

I use a set of mustaines, if he's not happy with his jb then he shouldn't put a mustaine set in there since the mustaines are pretty much the same thing as a jb/jazz set with a bit more output.


edit: try a duncan distortion or a crazy 8, might be what you're looking for

Can the Blackouts produce more gain than the EMG 81? Sorry for hijack and I've never seen those p'ups.
