I'm a new convert to Seymour Duncan Blackout Bridge pickup. Previously, I was an EMG-81 user. I liked the 81 because it is a necessary pickup for downtuned syncophated metal but my ears don't like the compression that comes with it.
With the Blackout, I got a more organic tone, with more bass, and mids. Overall I am happy with it BUT
There seems to be this little high end ring immediately when I stop after I do synchopated riffs. It's not a big issue but I just wanna get rid of it.
I haven't played in a rehearsal room, in a band setting, using half-stacks.
I'm currently just 'test-driving' the pickup with the following set-up:
NNG Custom Flying V ( Mahogany body / rosewood fretboard )
MOdded Metal Zone
Modded BOSS GE-7
Boss NOise Suppressor
I use 0.54 to 0.12 strings tuned to C# standard or Drop-B with medium action.
The pedals go straight to the FX return of an old Charvel solid-state combo amp.
If you guys, have views on this little problem, please enlighten me.
