Well, I got the small 500k pot, and got the Distortion installed. My first thought is that I really like the high end and the mids are nice, but it has more bass than I am used to having. However, I didn't have much time to play over the Christmas holiday, so that's just a preliminary assessment.
My last passive pickup question (for now), how far from the strings should the pickup be? I know that passives are much more sensitive to string spacing than the EMGs, but I'm not exactly sure where I should start.
I raise it up way too high, put it on a very clean amp, and edge it back until it doesn't break up when I smack the hell out of the strings. If there is a correct height, I'd like to know as well.
