OK so im mainly interested in passive pickups here.
I'm a long time EMG user, and already know these are an obvious choice. But i find that Blackouts do an even better job than EMGs. The pinches on blackouts are insane...think Aeon.
But yeah, I'm curious to find out what passive pickups have the best response to pinch harmonics.
in experience, which pickups do you guys find translate pinch harmonics best?
I want specification for bridge and neck as well!
As an obnoxious pinched harmonic enthusiast, I'm slightly confused by the question. In my experience, there is no pickup that does it better, you just.... do it So long as there is enough distortion to give it some sustain, you're good to go. Get mean, pinch that shit! Pinch acoustics, hell, pinch a motherfucking bass!
