I assume you meant wouldn'tNever played one, but if it has that same dry, sterile high end as a Pegasus, I almost certainly would.
That was a little unclear, but I was saying, yes, I would likely agree with the statement Mike made.I assume you meant wouldn't
It's not what I would call sterile, but it's definitely dry unless you overdrive to a certain point. It's odd though, the point at which it starts to slur happens very rapidly. It's never a breed or something obviously, but it goes from dry to "wet" very suddenly. I find cranking up the treble side of the pickup is a good balance.
We've always hated on the JB7 - it's too hot compared with the six-string version. Dave and I always hated on V30s - although we grudgingly admit they sound good in the mix with Rectos - but NO ONE likes brand new V30s. You have to break them in.Whoa did I miss the memo? We're hating on JBs and vintage 30s now? :rofl:
:agreed: The neck PU from that set is really nice, too.Followup on this thread: I ended up not digging the Pegasus that much in the SL7 for exactly the reasons Drew stated.
I found a used cheap Suhr Hot 7 on Reverb that was already drilled for direct-mount, and it's a huge improvement. Definitely a first choice for 7-string bridge pickups.
I'm assuming it's basically a 7-string Aldrich. It's an overwound Alnico V that just's nice and balanced with nothing weird going on. Tight enough on the lower strings, but also plenty of scream for leads.Came here to say that the 7Hot is a fantastic pickup. Although last time I tried it was maybe 3 years ago? Suhr 7 into a Mesa Triple Crown and Mark V:25 is never going to sound bad is it? :lol: It had a little bit of the 'hollow' thonk I like from the EMG 707 oddly.
Already got my searches set up. :lol::agreed: The neck PU from that set is really nice, too.
