    Exclamation Blackouts AHB-1 VS Blackouts Metal AHB-2

    which is which?

    the most heaviest?

    the one that can produce the most jaw breaking "hellish" sound?

    Blackouts AHB-1 or Blackouts Metal AHB-2?

    That question would've come across just as well if you typed it in normal sized text.

    emg 81 is not ahb-1, but it's close enough.

    the sound of hell is an SG tuned to C with a P90 in the bridge.

    Active metal humbuckers sound like.............................................. ..........purgatory, at best

    There's a statement full of crap. EMG 85 and the AHB-1 neck in the bridge are great sounding PuP's. Learn how to use the tone controls on your amp...

    active pups are too quick to respond and hi-fi to be like hell. they're like swords or needles maybe. AK-47s. Not hell.

    P90s are sludgy and rude and are always humming and making extra noise in the background and causing the guitar to feed back. Hellish indeed.

    SG tuned to C with a P90 in the bridge is the father of metal Satan tone created by Toni Iommi.

    EMG's and Blackouts are more like Satan's teenage son.
