HOLY CRAP! The Humbucker from Hell with the clean channels sounds really stratty on my guitar, then when you engage some burning gain, it's an all out rawk tone. Pairs really well with the Dimarzio Fred too. The Fred is just classic PAF Pro with more growl and roar. Very happy with the pairing. Also installed a push pull on the master volume to get coil split tones. Humbucker from Hell split just sounds like its own humbucker tone, but less low end and the added hum. I just decided to split it because I wanted the volume to balance well when paired with the Fred coil splitted as well

Also, with that much clarity and brightness from the Humbucker from Hell, I could actually play rhythms with it with a lot of gain, even though it's in the neck position  :o

I recently installed a Humbucker from Hell in my PRS and its great. I avoided it for so long because I had heard it was overly bright. That isn't even remotely true from what I am hearing. I've got a Gibson 498t in the bridge with it and they pair up surprisingly well.

It's bright like a single coil, but the high end isn't overbearing. It's actually rolled off quite nicely. Makes the pickup sing, not to mention in some cases, cuts through the mix very well. Furthermore, I noticed even when the tone control was turned down to zero, the Humbucker from Hell still sounded very clear. Very similar qualities like you would get on a late 60s single coil pickup  8)
