Hey guys, thought I'd throw up a short clip that I recorded. It's the same riff, recorded once with the bkp aftermath and once with the seymour duncan custom 7. Both in my carvin dc 727 through an HD500. The tone is roughly the same, though I turned the gain down a bit for the AM.
I won't say which is which on here (the answer is in the description on the actual soundcloud page, for those curious) to keep the bias to a minimum. Check it out!
Sorry if it's a bit quiet, I didn't want to do any postprocessing or anything to affect the difference between the two pickups.
Great comparison! These are two of my favourite pickups. It would have been interesting if you'd left the gain settings the same for each.
The Custom seems a little more even overall, whereas the Aftermath has a bit more upper-midrange grind to it. All other things being equal, i think in a busy mix, the Aftermath would probably cut a little better, but the Custom sounds a lot more dense and rich.
