Whenever i see or hear about high output humbuckers,theyre always intended for metal or heavy music. I want a warm sounding pickup,but high output so i can push my tubes into overdrive easier.Does anyone know any pickups like this?

i know that you probably won't like this, but seymour duncan blackouts. they have a much more woody and organic tone than EMG's.

Pretty much everything sounds woody and organic compared to EMG's, that's a pretty lousy choice.

The Duncan JB isn't overly high- output or voiced for metal, but it's pretty hot- sounding and works for blues, classic rock, and the like. If that's a little bright, the Custom 5 and Custom Custom are also similar.

It has to be a humbucker,and nothing over about $120.Im using a Crate v50 50 watt tube combo.

This or a Dimarzio Super Distortion, although the Dimarzio may be a little too hot.

Isn't the Seymour Duncan Jazz a little on the high output side (for a neck pickup)? Those sound great in the mahogany guitars I've tried.

I wouldn't say so.

The 59 is hotter than the Jazz, and even that is a moderate one, even for a neck pickup.

I suggest the Screamin' Demon. Despite what the name suggests, it's not obscenely hot, but it does sound very nice. I prefer it to the JB

Put a dimarzio Super Distortion in it. They were designed in the 70's to push tube amps.

Can you name me any artists who have used this pickup so i can listen to it?


BTW,how would you say the SD-1 compares to other similarly priced overdrives?

Probably the most famous are Ace Frehley of KISS (he had them in his les pauls) and Glenn Tipton from Judas Priest (who used a lot of guitars, including a strat with dimarzio SD's. I dunno which tracks he used it on, though).
I think Rivers Cuomo from Weezer has them in some of his strats.

There are sound samples on the dimarzio website, plus you can look on youtube
