The Pickup Place / Re: What to pair with A EVO 2?
« Last post by Wrath of nature on April 19, 2019, 03:04:01 pm »
   I own a Evo 2 and EVO neck in a high end mahogany setneck setup. No Evo neck for my friend. Once again, this guitar isn't about my guitar. It's my friends. Evo neck is out.

Have you considered an Evo neck to go with the Evo2 Bridge? It sounds like another logical choice.
When you said, "Needing a crunchier, much more clear, cleaner low notes and not so much a fat neck pickup. A tad of warmth for tone but remain more bridge pickup sounding then a over powering liquid sound."  it brought to mind the Humbucker from Hell because that sounds like a description of it.

   This is thing I told my friend. Ditch the High output X2N & D-Activator Neck F-'spaced and try a lower output approach.
 
   Does that Humbucker from Hell do good metal chops tones? Harmonics must be amazing and pop. Anyone have heavy metal experience in a neck? Not a downtune player and It's a Jackson Soloist Basswood. Can it handle a nice down tune odd occasion?
 I love the D-Activator neck on his guitar, he struggles with it.. The X2N is too much for me but he thinks it's thrash amazing but once he got hold of a EVO 2, all changed. More dynamics in his playing.

If the Demon is too bright on the high end, the Steve's special is similar EQ, but not as present and bright.

Seymour Duncan Screaming Demon?

I have the Screamin Demon in another guitar, so I might try to swap it in. Just not sure if it's gonna be too much on the high end.

I checked out the Breed, thanks guys! Might give it a shot :)

The Pickup Place / Re: Ultimate Strat Sound Rail Pickup Configuration?
« Last post by HeyNorton! on April 19, 2019, 12:19:53 am »
50 k is the volume pot.  Powered, low impedance systems need the 50k ( or 25k)

The Clapton setup uses:
A 50 k volume pot.
A 250k/1meg tbx tone control (can also be a regular 250 or 500k tone pot)
A 250k LINEAR taper pot for the midboost.


I believe the dimarzio rails are designed to work with the standard 250k pots that come in strats, so you should be good to go with what you have.

Sounds like you would be satisfied with a Humbucker from Hell. The only reservation I would have with it is that it is a little lower output. It fits your description though.

Gear Closet / Sinasoid Slate Cables...
« Last post by Strangeman86 on April 18, 2019, 04:44:57 pm »
Pros:
- LIGHT (I know that cabling should be light anyway, but this 16 foot cable is noticeably lighter than a comparable length I have from another small-ish brand and even lighter than a 10 footer I have from that same other brand).
- Available in a wide variety of colors and ends (when they have it in stock).
- CLEAR (sounding)!  I'm not just talking bright, I'm talking clear (i.e. a smoother road for your signal to travel from your guitar to your amp/pedals/modeler).  That being said, I'm glad I got a longer cable, my guitar is bright as it is.
- I got mine with Neutrik ends, they're fantastic.
- This is very flexible cable that coils nicely and easily.

Cons:
- I had to get it in red.  Not an actual 'con', but I have four kids, it's bound to get stained by something/someone.
- Kind of pricey with longer cables and nicer ends.

Overall, it's something I didn't realize I needed until I got it.  This is some seriously low-capacitance cabling that will give you a noticeably cleaner/brighter sound than your garden variety guitar shop cables.  You may not like how bright it has the ability to be (your mileage may vary).

  A bluesbucker for a cleaner metal, crunching NECK sound? Never would have thought of that. I'll look into this.
