Hey there, tonal gurus of DOOOOOOM! ( )
I'm thinking about swapping my Duncan JB with something else. I'm currently using it in a PRS Custom 22, but I'm thinking that I possibly can get a little more out of the axe using a different pickup. As of now, I really dig the harshness from the JB, but I could do with a little more clarity and a tighter bass response, as well as a more focused sound. Therefore a few DiMarzios have entered my mind, like the Evolution. But still, I'd like to stay with Duncan, 'cause in many ways I prefer the Duncan ground tone to what DiMarzio generally does. I'm still open for suggestions for DiMarzios, though.
A possible route could be a lower output pickup, right? Any suggestions? I'd still like to have a certain harshness to the sound, as I play a lot of extreme metal, but I wouldn't die if the pickup had a really good clean tone as well... (Good driven tone, while still retaining a good clean tone.... Don't we all want that? )
