good for rocking then? but i need "clear cleans" too, how about that?

they're better than the usual alnico classic humbuckers that come with most epiphones right?

They (and all Gibson products for that matter ) are a little on the overpriced side of things.

High Output = More Output.

Low Output = Less Output.

Think about it.

High output - better overdrive, worse (or less) cleans

they do give pretty good cleans. I heard them on youtube - someone was showing off thier new epiphone prophecy with dirty fingers. have to say, they sounded pretty good.

i just sold my '80 gibson dirty fingers pickup. It was a nice little pickup, great for heavy/crunchy overdrive tones, it could also add a unique element to cleans when paired with the right pickup. I would have kept it around, but all my guitars are going in the single coil direction.

i can't speak on the re-issues. I haven't even heard one.

are these pickups any good? any experience with them?


They are the only gibson pickup I like.

There are many companies that make pickup that are like the dirty fingers but the real dirty fingers are the only ones I've ever had my hands on that are any good. If thats the tone you are going for.

If you need cleans then these things are horrible. 2 sets of adjustable poles gives you a very grainy gritty sound. It's not that the clean tone doesn't sound good, it's that the clean tone doesn't sound clean. Even when your amp is clean it still sounds dirty.
Not taking any online orders.

Put it this way. Tom Delonge from Blink 182 used them. If you like the Blink 182 tone, I'm sure you could get it out of this pup.

^All the best to ya. I'm happy with Coheed and Cambria. To stay on topic. Dirty Fingers are nice pups if you want that CERTAIN tone. I would call 'em VERY versatile.

but of course you dont have to jugde these since blink has a reputation here on ultimateguitar

hm. are they more versatile than alnico classic? it's just that the SG prophecy costs 150euros more than the cheapest epi lp studio and 50 more than a epi lp standard, need to make sure i make the right choice.
#18
the prophecy and elitist series are your best bet from epiphone.

the default epi alnico pickups are horrid, with are found in the studios, standards and customs. you'll be glad you made the extra investment.

They are very high output (hot). I think they're the hottest that Gibson makes, not sure.


the 500t and Tony Iommi are hotter, the 496R might also bebit i don't remember.

the SG prophecy here costs 408, which is less than the Epi LP Standard plus-top. is the SG prophecy a good option in your opinion then?

The Tony Iommi one is not.

This is from the Gibson Website, thought you might find it interesting.


So the 500t and the dirty fingers are the hottest they make.

I want to hear a clip of someone using Dirty Fingers in something other than power chords. They sound awesome in all those blink clips, but I want a little diversity. I'm thinking about putting them in my Gibson Sonex. I need something to bring it back to life!
