Okay so I have three guitars
Ibanez 7620 with D Activators
Ibanez 1570 with Gravity Stork Humbuckers/Evo coil
The prestige is the one I gravitate towards and the others have pretty much been gathering dust.
While taking a break from practicing I pulled out the other two guitars.
Is it just me or are D Activators extremely growly pickups?
I played them through the same amp with the same settings and wow it seems the D Activators have more bass and growl.
Is that the correct observation? No, I was not comparing the lowest string on the 7..... I used the same six you'd find on a standard guitar.
I can see why the D Activators are a popular modern metal choice if this is the case.
I have the six-tring D-Activator and they're quite big on the low end in Basswoods.... Great pick-ups if you're purely into gain-y tones ..not a fan of its cleans though lol.. I even prefer the D-Activator over the EMG.
