So a little while ago I got myself a jackson rr24 and love it dearly. It feels really good and solid plus it looks metal as fuck
The only problem is the Emg 81, which I don't completely hate but it has to go. I like how tight and aggressive it sounds but I don't like how compressed and scooped it feels. Also even though I'm going for a sharp and bright sound the high end feels super shrill and nasty and the attack feels really weird, almost like a singel coil.
So I'm looking for a passive pickup to replace the Emg with. I want something that's at least almost as tight as the Emg but with a thicker more "normal" attack that is still snappy and percussive. And I want my midrange to be actually there and have a nice growl or roar to it. And like a said earlier, I like a bright sound so I like plenty of high end just not the shrill emg kind. Also I'm going for more of a dryer sound rather than a super saturated one,
I'm gonna be playing through my boosted mark III and tuning to B standard. My music is sort of thrash metal with death metal influences in it so I just basically try to down pick as fast as possible with some tremolo picked stuff thrown in for fun.
Ok, hopefully that covered everything and wasn't too boring and long
Please help me out, and thanks in advance
