Sugar Shakra questions
« on: September 18, 2020, 10:46:22 am »
Hello
The Sugar Shakra is a designated bridge pickup. Would it also be usable in the middle position of a Superstrat ( Floyded) with a hot normal sized bridge Humbucker?
 Also, do ALL the Dimarzio twin blade pickups have 'low string pull' with the side by side coils, or is it only the specific twin rail pickups Dimarzio specifies as having this property?
 TIA

The Norton won't tame anything.  A fantastic pickup, it will make your LP sound like a wild mongoose who is piloting a F-22 raptor and smoking crystal meth

Rails in general have lower magnetic pull due to the construction vs. a single coil with magnetic pole pieces.

It's probably usable in the middle with a full-size humbucker, but I'd only do that with a very hot bridge humbucker, like a D-Activator X or X2N. It's got similar output to something like a Super Distortion, so it's already hot even by humbucker standards, and I would be hesitant to pair it up with anything that isn't even hotter than that.
