    Default Sound diff between detonator and invader?

    I've heard the Detonator has a little less bass, but thats all.

    It's much more like a Distortion with bit more low end and grunt. It's a really great pickup.

    Fairly articulate. Not fizzy like the Invader. I'll take the Detonator over one of those any day of the week.

    Get two Detonators and stick an A8 into one. One of my favorite "Duncan" pickups.
    "Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished." Isaiah 13:16

    "Kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves." Numbers 31:17-18


    Want to trade? You go first. I've got over 15,000 feedback as a seller on eBay.

    J/K, A8 is a type of magnet. Should be available on eBay.

    The Detonator sounds clearer and less thumpy than the Invader. TBH, Duncan should make a USA version of it. I think it'd sell.

    Only in passing. They were supposed to be like a Distortion, no?

    The Detonator is basically a Distortion w/ Invader double row caps. Direct from Evan Skopp.

    I dig it. Extremely tight, takes the shriek off the highs, a little thicker than a Distortion maybe. Great pickup.
