  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I run an HS set up, which I have on my charvel. It started out as HH but it didn't stay that way for long. I love the functional diversity of HS. I've had a few true single coils, some hum free singles, and some single coil sized humbuckers. Best of the bunch was the Dimarzio Chopper, but I...
  2. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Not only did I like the guitar itself. But the Duncan Solar is TIGHTER THAN THE IRONGEAR! I have searched for a "goddamn fucking tight" pickup for a long time... EMGs 81s are too muddy, EVOs just aren't tight enough, Duncan Distortions are too scooped bla bla... I've tried a lot... Irongear...
  3. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I am shitty at mixing and cannot make guitars sound tight and up front. So what did I do? I tried different pickups and there it was Irongear Steam Hammer... Tightest pickup I've ever tried. It sort of "redeemed" the issue, but probably from the wrong angle! I know tons of albums that are...
  4. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Putting another Irongear into one of my guitars. Since this guitar was previously built for a friend he used his 70s pickups in it. But I took it back when I needed it to install the Evertune. And now I have finally put a Steam Hammer into it! I will add a neck pickup later. The PAF is a...
  5. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Since I've dedicated myself to install Irongear pickups in all my guitars I've now finally swapped out the EMG 81 of my Jackson RR24. Now, to be completely honest, in this particular comparison above, I slightly prefer the EMG 81: I dont like the "stiffness", but it's not icepicky in top-end...

    Letting this one go! Ibanez MTM2 in great condition, appart from one scratch more or less 8 cm (3 inches) on the front, in the clearcoat (not up to the wood), over neck pickup. Please see picture. Original (crap) pickups (Ibanez V7-V8) were replaced for IronGear Steam Hammer, that I imported...
  7. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Remember my reamping craze I had a while ago? It's over. And it was the pickups fault ALL ALONG!!!!:pissed: I'm re-recording one of my upcoming albums from scratch with Irongear Steam Hammers. It's definitely going to be worth the time! Here's the old recording, with EMG 60. It's muddy and meh...
  8. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Ok maybe this video doesn't show exactly how tight they are, but of all pickups I've tried, these are the shit. I often play very fast 16th and this is the first pickup that made me go "wooohooo" about. It's specd to be very high output, but compared to a Dimarzio EVO the Evo comes across as...
  9. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    For a while I've been looking at these Iron Gear Metal Machine pickups for my guitar that I'm modding, because I wanted some pickups with a bit more "kick" IronGear Pickups - Metal Machine Any thoughts on this brand? I've heard some pretty good reviews of it before.

    A few pickups for sale in the UK Swineshead Venom 6 string- £20 plus postage This is as new, I never installed it because it was way too deep for the route on the RG I bought it for and other things came and went. Swineshead have gone the way of the dodo but back in the day I read a few good...
