7Hot doesn't have a ton of low end. It's very balanced. I'm quite happy with it, so far.
Yeah, that's about right. Suhr says it's basically the same thing, and it sounds very close to the Aldrich in my '88 Dinky.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.
Yeah, I have to agree. I don't like the Distortion in the bridge much, since the ceramic is too gritty, but the neck sounds good.I could totally live with keeping the stock Distortion-7 in the neck, though. It's a good sound.
