School me on Lace Pickups.
I run my signal extremely hot and never use a clean sound, don't tune super low (ie don't want the 'quacky', first four frets, low tuning style sound). I don't do expression or dynamics, I'm after mid aggressive, heavy right handed definition at high-speed.
After a foray into Bareknuckles for a couple of years, I had to admit defeat after recording a previous guitarist who completely killed me with an EMG 81. Since then, I've been solidly running 81's, most of the time with an MM-04.
Are Lace pick-ups for me in any way? One very trustworthy opinion from another player has suggested they wouldn't do what i want at all.
I'm only familiar with the singlecoils, man, so I'm of little help here. Some of their newer humbuckers do seem to be targeted after that sound, but I have no clue how they deliver. The Deathbucker clips I've heard seem VERY bright, which would help in a high gain situation but may cause problems if you're not tuning down.
