Hey - new to the forums


What is the greatest pickup ever in your opinion? and why?

For me - Dimarzio Super Distortion

With one of these things, I can do anything haha

Chords come out clear, individual notes pop, yeah...

for me Dimarzio D activator x's,
they can do awesome cleans, chords are good, so are individual notes, IT INCREASED MY SUSTAIN, and it can go anywhere from barely dirty, to castrating you with a single note, pretty sweer

how are the mark tremonti treble and bass pickups? I was thinking of putting some of those in my custom 22.

I wouldn't use anything with Tremonti's name on it...except maybe for the Power Wah

They aren't the best... I think Noiseless single coils kind of defeat the purpose of single coils. They don't sound like they should be in a stratocaster, they get rid of the strat vibe in my opinion.

they're ok. definitely noiseless, but they still won't give you the perfect strat sound. i would definitely try them out before you buy them.

actually i don't think i would consider them an upgrade at all.

A set of slightly overwound (formvar wire), alnico V single coils.

That's just the basic recipe for the greatest pickup ever IMO, there's hundreds of pickup sets similar to that basic recipe.

Thanks guys


I've tried other noiseless sets and I didn't like them. But then again, I'm not really a single coil kind of guy
