First off, nothing like a set of pickups that allows me to save a file called "FAB JUGGS". It's puerile, I know, but the teen in me was delighted. Now that this is out of the way... The reason why I didn't up a video straight off the bat upon getting these was to show in a more readily accessible, cheaper guitar, what these pickups can do, as opposed to some guitars I own that are very difficult to come by at all and many can't afford; that would defeat the point of the demo altogether, in my opinion, so I used a VGS Soulmaster 7 that is the first Evertune guitar I had - it costs 540 EUR, has a plain nato body with a maple neck and a rosewood board, so the specs are quite trivial and easy to find out there.
This is one of several sets of Juggernauts I own, and they became my 7-string set of choice for most guitars. Among other things, they have a very rich, full tone, yet retain a lot of clarity, without any flub happening in spite of the generous low end response. They are also quite genuine in terms of dynamics - that is something I have struggled with with many sets created for high gain applications, as they slam the input so hard it becomes very difficult to have the pick attack's subtleties translate well to the amp - it is most certainly not the case here, as they respond quick and truthfully to the player's own playing. In my opinion, the most encompassing and versatile set for anyone leaning towards the metal side of things but wants something that covers a lot more ground.
The gear was simple: guitar straight into my Kemper with profiles of my own Ironheart 60, Budda Superdrive 18W and Silverblade Hellhound straight into my Presonus Firestudio, and no post EQ was applied to prevent artifacts and allow the guitar's interaction with the rigs to shine through. Only standard mastering was applied here, as usual.
And here's the vid:

Now to do a Misha's Jugs vs. Jake's Tits comparison. Yes, I went there.
Great video dude! Sounds awesome.
