    Default Dimarzio Super Distortion vs Duncan Detonator (in a metal application)

    im sure most of you will go back and forth about it and mostly say the DSD cause of its reputation for rock
    i like the rounded sound of detonator a little more for the style i play
    also i may of played the detonator clip slightly more sloppy and that leads to a blander mushier sound, if the layers were dead on then it would be better, but i did my best today.

    IMO DSD sounds more focused and tight. I luv me some focus and tightness. Let there be ro... I mean Super Distortion.

    I couldn't tell the difference unless you held a gun to my head, in which case I would soil myself.

    imo, very similar pickups, but i thought the super distortion was a bit more loose in the low end, whereas the detonator had more high-mid crunchiness going on which made it sound a little bit tighter.

    im all about the detonator now.
    its going to be my thing for awhile now. i want to explore maybe A8s and A2 magnets in it etc...but i love the huge sound out of the double ceramic so it will be hard to even try anything else for now.
